Buying used and cheap lens in UK
This is my first post in here, hopefully I pick the right section to ask my question.
I am from UK, and I have recently starting photography as a hobby, and to start with, I have previously purchased a Panasonic G2 with the bundled 14-42mm kit lens from a friend for a bargain price.
I have played it for a little while, and now would like to buy some additional lens. However, searching on the internet, a new lens usually costs quite a lot.
I wonder whether you guys have some recommended some trusted sources or professional forums in UK that do trading of second hand lens please.
I know there is a trade section in here, however a lot of the sellers are not from UK, so considering the shipping it may not be so convenient. (ButI do know there are posts from UK, so hopefully those people can advise me on this question!)
At the end of the day, I would like to know where I can get a cheap but good condition second hand lens, let say some old SLR or Four Third lens (I understand they can only be used with MF), so I may be able to do something fancy to make more fun in this photography world!!
P.S Perhaps I can propose to have an individual section for Europe, or for UK only, just to make the members find threads more easily...
Thank you very much
