    I'm considering selling my kit lenses that came with my EPL1. They are the 14-42 and 40-150mm. Before I place them in the classifieds, I really would like to know the potential value. Please help me with this...

    Thanks,

    Stacey

    I sold my 40-150 for £112 on Ebay - I don't know what a reasonable price to set in classifieds is.
    I would think there is not a high demand for the Mk1 kit lens (my EPL1 with kit lens went for £120 on Ebay).

    A general tip for determining "market price" for lots of used items - do a search on eBay for the item, and then in the left sidebar there is a link to show only Completed Listings. You can see what it has sold for on eBay over the last several weeks/months. As Spuff said, the price for the original Olympus 14-42 will be less than the updated "14-42mm II"

    I would guess you could move them fairly quickly at 50ish for the 14-42mm and maybe 125-150 for the 40-150mm.

    Going by eBay, seems that the range is around $50-75 for the 14-42mk1 and $115-140 for the 40-150.

    EPL-1 plus kit lenses

    Well, I haven't attempted to sell my lenses yet; however, now I want to sell my EPL-1 with the lenses. I would like to sell all together. So, with that said, anybody have thoughts on this system, priced together?

    Heck, I'd sell the 12-50 as well... Thoughts on the price for that? Basically, I want to get a couple of primes lenses for my OM-D. I would like the 25MM 1.4 and the 45MM Olympus.
