Description

I have the following for sale:

Lenses in excellent or very good condition (mechanically and optically perfect, no scratches, either no wear or minor wear on body):
Olympus 25mm F1.8 with B+W UV Haze MRC filter and lens hood: $250
Olympus 45mm F1.8 with B+W UV Haze MRC: $200
Olympus 12-40mm F2.8 Pro with B+W UV Haze MRC: $500 (was 550, dropped upon reflection)
Olympus 40-150mm F4-5.6 with B+W UV Haze MRC and lens hood: $60 (SOLD)

Lenses in good condition:
Olympus 17mm F2.8 (scratch in plastic body but glass is in perfect shape): $60 (SOLD)
Olympus pancake / body cap lens: $20

Olympus Pen-F digital camera, excellent condition EXCEPT hotshoe is loose so sometimes the flash won't fire. I'm not sure whether it is an easy fix or not, so I am selling it for $250 under market: $550. Includes original box and all accessories in unused condition. The only accessory I used was the LM-3 mini-flash, which is included. Also includes Fittest Flo-Pen-F grip for much improved ergonomics.

Olympus Pen E-PM1 digital camera, very good condition with no problems. Includes micro flash that originally came with it: $60

Olympus HLD-6 (both parts, grip and vertical battery grip): $100

Total is $1680... but if you make my life easy and take everything off my hands at once, I'll let it all go for $1280. I would consider trading for some combination of a Fuji X-T20 or X-T2, Fuji XF18-55 lens and a fast Fuji X-mount prime.

I'm not a heavy user, mostly kids and vacation photos so except for the loose hotshoe :( this gear is all in good shape. I'm switching to Fuji and the wife says I have to sell my current gear first. :)

If I were in the market for ANY of this, I'd just buy the whole lot at that nice discount and sell off the bits I don't need.

And not being a guy that EVER uses flash, I'm tempted to buy the Pen. But I just sold one because I thought it was too small....maybe the grip makes the difference. :daz:

Prior camera was om-d e-m1... still have it and will probably keep it with the EZ lens. I find it amazingly comfortable, the grip on it is perfect. So even though feature-wise the pen-f was a dream, my stomach dropped with dismay when I held it. Especially with anything bigger than the EZ lens, it was just exhausting to hold and use for me.

Note that I have kids so I am almost always using it one-handed, and am a big guy, so I agree, it felt small in my one hand. I couldn't reach controls comfortably. The Pen-F felt amazing held with two hands though.

So I added the grip and it was like night and day... amazing... I added the grip within a couple days of purchase and never took it off since.

The grip gives it the ergonomics I was looking for.

Yeah, the discount is intended to do what you note lol... I've got 4 kids age 8,6,4,1yo and no time... if I have to sell them individually on e-bay or whatever I will but I thought I'd try the lot here first. :)

All have caps and covers, no boxes. Some have hoods, those are included if shown. All except the 17mm f2.8 and body cap lens have B+W MRC UV Haze filters for protection, always on since day one.

Updated to fix my brain fart... duplicate line for 45mm and resulting math adjustment. I'm surprised no one commented! :)

Updating since a couple of lenses have sold, and I've put the rest up individually on ebay: joat_mos on eBay

Also, someone asked about the loose shoe on the pen-f so I'll paste my reply here:

The last time I used it, it fired once, then not a couple times when it should have, then I pushed down to hold the flash firmly in place and it fired, then it didn't fire the next couple of times, at which point I put it down and picked up my trusty om-d e-m1. :)

The shoe wiggles up and down, where it didn't before. I don't know if it is a screw loose that could be tightened or a broken pin, or what... I googled repair prices and it seemed like repair might be around $200, thus the discount level I chose. Obviously you shouldn't count on that since it isn't a quote from a repair center. Or if it is something simple and you are handy enough to do it yourself, that might work. I simply don't know, and can't make any guarantees.

I could take a video and maybe macro photo of the join where it wiggles so you get a better sense?

Checking on the Pen f... Can you pull it from ebay and sell here or is it stuck on ebay until it sells?

Well, I tried to check how much the cancellation fee would be and in trying to check, I accidentally cancelled it... so it is pulled for now. I'll relist soon.
