Re: Possible Sale GULP !!.....

It is indeed a superlative and almost ubiquitous general purpose lens. The only quibbles I've ever heard are size and weight, but as you're also a FF user, it will probably seem rather modest in size; 5 inches long and a pound and a quarter. The (dual) stabilisation is amazing. Most people who have one say it's rarely off their camera and they sometimes sell the superlative 12-40 f/2.8 and some even the 40-150 f/2.8.

No use for your Olympus E500 and E3 and certainly not for N***n Coolpix 995.

If you fancy a cheap used 12-60 SWD f/2.8-4.0 however ... :-)

I've got a E-P5, also an E3, E5, E1 as well as the Coolpix 995.

My 12-60 is U/S and would cost around 150 for repair, so how "cheap" is the one you mention?
