Lumix 20mm priced to sell

Hi,

Lumix 20/1.7 pancake lens for sale - in my view one of the essential lenses if you want a compact m43 kit, and the one I'd choose to keep if I could only have one lens in total.

I'm the first owner from new, and it's been a great lens since the day it arrived with my GF-1 a few years back. The lens has been well cared-for and is in good shape - perfect optically but with a few signs cosmetically that it isn't brand new, in particular the silver "Lumix" writing is starting to wear from the front lens cap. It comes unboxed but with the original pouch - sadly the string ties for the pouch are long-gone, but it would be very easy to improvise a replacement with some short boot laces!

As the lens isn't absolutely mint, I've priced it very reasonably at 160 incl RMSD within the UK (but not incl PayPal fee if you choose to pay that way). Reason for selling.... don't ask, but I now have two of them - so however good they are, one needs to go!

Please PM if you have any questions.

Cheers,

Jon

Re: Lumix 20mm priced to sell

Hi,
Would you be willing to ship to Alaska (USA)? I was gifted an E-PL2, but am suffering without a low-light lens. And being a poor student, $300+ is above my budget right now.

Best,
David

David - I'd prefer to sell in the UK but could send abroad. That said, postage will not be terribly cheap (approx 16) so we'd be talking about c175 to Alaska. At today's exchange rate (XE.com) that's about $280.

Cheers,

Jon

$280 is a bit more than I can spend right now. Thanks anyway!

Best,
David

Re: Lumix 20mm priced to sell

Does this lens come with a lens hood. Many of the panny lenses do?
I might be interested.

Mine didn't when it came bundled with the (really rather good) GF-1.

Re: Lumix 20mm priced to sell

Hi - no lens hood but I've never found it to be an issue (and I generally use lens hoods when I can). Like John, mine came with the (really rather good) GF-1, which is still in regular use. I often use the 20mm and of all my lenses reckon it would be the easiest to live with if I was only allowed to keep one.

You know it makes sense.....

Cheers,

Jon
