Since you may not still have Four Thirds lenses, the rig includes two lenses: Olympus 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 Mk1, and 50-200 f2.8-3.5 non SWD. These two lenses have a reputation for sharpness and durability that works really well in this kit.
The camera has a few signs of wear, but not many. I'd put it easily at Ex+. It will come with an Optech neoprene strap (not shown) instead of the M4/3 strap shown. I just discovered that the one small terminal cover is missing from the left side. All the other caps and covers are present. The flash works but I've not used it. The batteries are all Olympus and there are four of the battery caps. The charger is the faster one that was shipped with the E-X cameras.

The 14-54 is in great shape; clean glass, proper caps, accurate focus (calibrated to the camera at the conversion). I'd put condition at Ex++. Includes the Olympus hood, proper caps, and box. I had the later version of the 14-54; this is a much better (and faster) lens.
The picture of the storefront was taken with this one.

The 50-200 is a workhorse. Accurate focusing. The tripod collar is present, as are the correct caps, the Olympus hood and the padded Olympus case. The lens shows a little wear, and a few minor nicks, but nothing that affects function. The rubber on the zoom grip has whitened from not being handled much, but that should buff off if it bothers you. There's not a strap for the case, and one of the feet has been repaired, but it protects the lens. The shot of the house was with this one.

I've tried to price the kit such that it provides a reasonable package for someone to start in IR photography. I'd rather not sell the lenses separately unless the body goes first.
I figure shipping will be easily $25, but I'll cover whatever is over the $20 I'm asking.
Please PM me with questions, and/or if you want other pictures of any of the pieces. Thanks!

Hi! It looks like rrobinson might have already taken this off the market, but if not could you tell me:
  1. About the IR conversion: was the IR filter replaced with glass or was a specific IR filter put in its place? If the latter, what was the frequency of the filter?
  2. What is the shutter count?

Still available. I’ll have to check the shutter count in the morning. The IR filter was 830nm, which is Spencer’s standard B&W IR conversion. Back to you after some zzz.

Okay. If you’re interested in the body or the lenses separately, give me a shout. I’ve priced recent sales of each item on eBay, but that data is at home, and that’s not considering the IR conversion. Otherwise, I will probably list them individually there tomorrow or Monday. If you want to dip your toe in the infrared pool, this is a pretty reasonable way to start. Thanks!
