I've sold most of my OM gear including my only bodies and I've decided to stick solely to AF lenses. So this needs to go. This is the "made in Japan" version of the lens which is reported to perform "better" wide open. It does perform better than previous version, for sure, but it's not like shooting the O25 f1.8 wide open; it's still a little soft and prone to purple fringing. Doesn't mean you can't get usable images from it wide open though. I'll attach a couple samples.

I can't find any pics of the lens at the moment, but I do have some... somewhere. I would say it's in KEH Ex condition, conservatively. There's not much wear/brassing on the lens barrel that I can see; paint on the letters/numbers are bright and look new. Front and rear elements are void of any scratches/marks. There is some dust inside which is fairly common and shouldn't affect IQ. Focusing mechanism, aperture ring and blades all work properly (solid clicks on the aperture; focus is smooth and dampened).

If you want/need pics of the lens, I can take a couple when I get a chance and post them here. Lens comes with front cap, m4/3 adapter and m4/3 rear cap (OM rear cap available for additional $5).

$50 Shipped to your door in the CONUS.

Sample Images
One was taken on a FF camera, the other was m4/3.
