At that price, I am not surprised, blaggard must be very pleased.

I won't say what digit I thought you had omitted...

Re: Various Olympus Items for Sale

It's a great price but not unreasonably low for a secondhand lens, available for about 150 new and I have to say about where I would have priced it were I selling here, more on eBay of course with the risk and fees involved. I always find a reasonable price means avoiding the waiting and hassle. A great easy transaction and not my first here, it's a great forum.

Re: Various Olympus Items for Sale

I think it was a real bargain too if it's in good condition. I paid a lot more for mine second hand and I thought that was a good deal. Park cameras are selling it new at 200 with an RRP of 229.

Deal done now, I may have made a mistake, but never mind! Hope Mac enjoys it!

Re: Various Olympus Items for Sale

Well I genuinely think it was a good price, others in this thread (why I don't know) need to learn to use a search engine properly. Second hand prices are typically 1/2 or less than the price new NOT the RRP, I found this lens for 150 from the Far East and 185 in this Country. As I have said I would have expected to pay more from an auction site but in a forum where there is a higher level of trust given and expected the ease of transaction and lack of fees will allow for a lower price. I Have been a user of online forums since 1994 and now moderate on one of the busiest and longest lasting tech forums (12 years and counting) we have a BST section which is for VIPs only and is very carefully monitored, we feel comfortable buying and selling in there.
I don't know why you folks have chosen to comment on what is a private transaction between the seller and myself, on the forum I mentioned manners would usually mean concerns like yours being expressed in a PM, NOT by thread jumping.
Caroline I think you might have got a little more but I honestly would have asked for similar, I rarely have problems selling my equipment (tech and musical, my field as photography is very much a hobby) because I set realistic prices. Thanks again for an easy and pleasant transaction and rest assured your lens will be cosseted and used enthusiastically!

Re: Various Olympus Items for Sale

Hang on this wasn't mean't to upset anyone just as a comment as has been done before many times on this forum. Caroline got a quick sale to someone who will give the lens a good home I don't think she made a mistake just provided the forum with a bargain. Nothing wrong with that it keeps the forum a vibrant buying and selling place. Your reaction seems to imply some embarrasment at getting a bargain blaggard. I'd have been very pleased personally and think you did very well spotting it so quickly. I also saw the Far East sellers and others on ebay but chose a reputable sensibly priced UK outlet without overseas buying risk as my new price example. Using your example half 150 is 75 and half 185 is 92.50 so even on your terms I'd say you got a bargain.

Sorry to cause a bit of an argument! I bought the lens on this forum about two years ago. I am happy to have sold it!
Anyone want anything else!! -

Re: Various Olympus Items for Sale

Chaps, I wasn't trying to argue and I'm certainly not embarrassed, perhaps my view is coloured by my moderation on the other forum which DOES operate (at least in the BST) with slightly different rules. Anyway, I'm happy, I HAD been watching a Sigma EX 105 mm on eBay from someone here but this lens will better suit my purpose and I'm looking forward to getting some use out of it when I recover from surgery I'm having next week, knowing my luck the weather will be rubbish as soon as I'm fit!!
