FOR SALE: 12mm F2 & genuine hood

Having just got a 50-200 SWD for my recently purchased EM-1 I have decided to go for the 12-40 as my 'standard' lens therefore I am offering my 12mm F2 for sale.

I bought it brand new in October 2012 along with the genuine hood. Both are boxed and complete, the hood has some 'very light' marks to the internal matt finish but unmarked on the exterior. The lens is basically in an 'unused' condition, I have actually used it but very lightly and it has had a filter fitted since the day it was bought ( not included ).

With regard to price, I am asking 399.00 for the two, which is a saving of around 175.00 - 200.00 on new.

Postage will be via Royal Mail Special Delivery and at "actual cost" ( approx guide ... 9.00 )

The attached image is of the actual items being offered for sale.

Kind regards

Simon

No interest then ?

Ok, I'll drop to 375.00 "including" postage, but I'm not sure if I'm prepared to go lower as it would probably pay to keep it, add a 25 F1.8 and forget about purchasing 12-40 even though that lens is splash-proof.

Kind regards

Simon

Re: FOR SALE: 12mm F2 & genuine hood

That is a real bargain for a superb lens.

I have the same lens and apart from my first one being duff, the replacement is stunning and in all honesty I believe it to be the best 24mm equivalent I have ever owned (to include both Nikon and Leica M).

Not in any way involved in this sale but wanted to endorse the lens as I am so happy with miine and that price is superb.

Thank's Ian,

Yes it is indeed a bargain ( well I think so ) so if it doesn't go now I shall hold onto it.

"RogerRamJet" has now also registered his interest if earlier 'interested parties' fall through.
