Wanted - 14-45mm kit lens

Hi all,

I recently had a clumsy moment and dropped my 14-45mm kit lens that came with my E500.

I'm looking to buy another of the same as SWMBO will soon be taking on my E500 when I buy a new DSLR.

If anyone has one that's good quality and would be happy to part with it, please let me know. Ideally in the UK as I would like it for a photographic trip to Scotland early next month and want to be sure it'll arrive in time.

I've seen them on the LCE website occasionally for about 50, so that's the price area i'd be looking at.

Cheers,
Tom.

Get a second hand 14-42, it's optically better, smaller, and works with imager live view AF properly. It focuses closer as well.

I've got 2 I don't use - one used, but only a few times, and the other mint still in box un-used (came with my E330 I think... I have a 14 -54 which I use).

I'll have to dig them out and check on ebay for prices if you are still interested.

Edward,

Thanks for the ebay tip, I am watching some at the mo.

Ian, Wendy, I'm certainly interested, please could you let me know how much you would be looking for?

I must admit the closer focussing range of the 14-42 did appeal!

I don't have anything to sell, but the 14-42 is an excellent lens. The only advantage I see that the older 14-45 has is that it has a metal lens mount.

Hi, I'm watching one on ebay which ends tonight, to give me an idea of how much they are going for. It's the 14-45 I have (not 14-42).

The one I was watching (item no. 130334719305 ) went for 75 last night

So make me an offer - it's in it's original wrapping unopened inside my E330 box.

Hi Wendy,

Thanks. Bearing in mind that ebay is often much higher priced than 'normal' sources, I was thinking more like 50. There is currently a 14-42 on the LCE site for 79.99 which is looking quite tempting.

Hi
Yes, I thought 75 was a bit high that's why I said make me an offer. I was thinking more like 65 inc postage. If you like the LCE one that's fine and I'll ebay my lens plus some other bits. (The ebay one had another 5 postage)
