    I know...I said ..no more camera gear but I couldn't resist this lens from the guy who has a weekly stall at Tynemouth Market. It was pretty battered externally ( so got it quite cheaply :) ) but perfect optics and everything works. He also has the extension tube to make this lens a 1:1 macro so is keeping that for me. Having a trial run on my E-PL1 today.

    Thanks Ned ! lol. This lens looked sooo lonely and unloved on the dealers table.He explained it's history and credentials and I was convinced. I checked eBay and they are going for 3 times what I paid . I don't mind external cosmetics and this dealer is local and reputable so we were both happy.

    Good choice!
    The 55/3.5 micro has become my most used lens for M4/3.
