Hi,

Would anybody be interested in purchasing a used FL36 flashgun and a mint never been used to the best of my knowledge OM 35-70 zuiko made in Japan lens?

I am open to offers before I try ebay.

Pictures of both can be seen by cut and pasting the flickr link below into your web browser.

Thanks for looking.

Alan

Re: For sale fl36 & OM zuiko 35-70 mint

Hi,

Thanks for asking.

Hopefully in the region of 90-100 + postage but I am open to any reasonable offer. Most fl36 seem to sell for about 120 + postage on fleabay. If I can find them I also have the box and warranty card somewhere.

It is a good little flash and works well with sanyo eneloop batteries.

Any other questions please ask.

I can't temp you with the lens then?? I think I am going to have to try the lens out and post a few pics as it really is unused (until I take some pics).

All the best
regards
Alan

Re: For sale fl36 & OM zuiko 35-70 mint

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in the reply. I am currently at the SWPP convention in London for the last couple of days and will be for a few days more.

It might seem strange but I have not really thought about a price for the lens - if you go to a posh second hand dealer like http://www.nicholascamera.com/list.c...=2&startrow=21 they quote 115-195 for a nr mint version. Someone such as ffordes quote 65 for an average used copy - https://secure.ffordes.com/Shop/Stor...=OY&subcode=ML. What they would pay me if I sold the lens to them is probably 50% of the estimated resale value, maybe less. It is a funny marketplace at the moment. At the end of the day suggest what it might be worth to you and I might just say that seems like a fair price.

The flash is still available if you wanted to know, if the situation changes I will update asap.

Regards

Alan


Now having just taken some high iso snaps with the E30 just off to upload them to the gallery if you are interested. Nothing fancy, snaps using the production version today with 14-54mkll and the 14-35 f2.

Thank you very much for the flashgun it arrived safely a few minutes ago.
Just unpacked it and had a quick play and so far am very pleased.
Don't suppose I will use it much as most of my photography takes place in the Staffordshire Moorlands/Peak District but I am sure it will come in handy at my Daughter's Wedding in June, which is the main reason I bought it.
Sorry but I'm not interested in the lens as I already have a 14-45, 14-42, both versions of the 40-150, 70-300 and 35mm Macro. If it was a 14-54 then I might be interested.
I would just like to say how nice it was for someone to offer their unwanted kit at a reasonable price to the user group members rather than going for a better return on Ebay.
It was a pleasure doing business with you and so much more relaxed than an Ebay auction.
Best regards
Ian

Your welcome Ian,

I hope it will come in useful to your general photography as well as the forthcoming wedding. I look forward to seeing a few of your creative shots in the gallery.


Now about that bounced cheque ;-)

All the best

Alan
