    I dont really have a need for these two lenses and am looking to part with them.
    They are both in excellent condition with all their stuff! No lens hoods. All caps.

    I am looking for $650 for the 12mm
    I am looking for $300 for the 45mm

    Open to trades if there is something you really wanna offer up for it.

    Those are two of the best lenses for the system. You just get tired of them?

    i love their build quality and IQ! i definitely dont need the 45 anymore since i started using a 50 zeiss, and at that focal length i dont really need AF for what i wanna be shooting. other than that there are a couple reasons:

    1) been thinking about getting into film a little bit and that could fuel the entry.
    2) ever since i got my Zeiss im in love with manual focusing with these older lenses.
    3) the 12mm is amazing but i have 2 other wides of similar length and use them more often due to being a bit more compact
    4) i have been tempted for a while to get an x100 as a backup/secondary and this could open up some funds, if i chose to.
    5) i forsee myself using the PL25 75% of the time and the other being that Zeiss due to this infatuation with them.
    6) I have the mentality of "if im not gonna be ENTHRALLED over it, someone else might be" so to clutch on to these for not much reason is taboo to me.
    7) I dont like having 100000000000 different lenses. Im a minimal type of guy

    :) thanks for asking, love your "pimp" thread still.

    Good points. There's something therapeutic about shooting film with a manual camera. Its just a nice chill process compared to shooting digital. When I was in college in the 1990's I took time off due to stress, left my Nikon N90s system at home and shot only B&W with a manual body. It was very much worth it.

    Plus I feel when you shoot manual you sharpen your skills greatly.

    If I didn't own both lenses already I'd snatch them up.

    I have this DESIRE to learn more about film and becoming more and more manual with things. I guess it is a desire to learn. Just don't often find this burning passion much anymore with the autonomy of life's activities, ya know?

    I will be posting a picture in your thread soon when I get this package in for my EP3 BTW. Nothing major but a small facelift. :2thumbs:

    Update: due to a mix up in shipping I don't have my 12mm yet! Sorry!

    I will sell the 45 to someone who is interested from this point forward. Starting fresh since I had a bunch of mixed replies

    Sorry again for the inconvenience
