    Wow! Just ordered for $223.99 with one day 20% off coupon code "president". I'll bet stock does not last long today with this additional discount.

    I wanted to add to this thread. I also bought a 45mm reconditioned lens and received it today. It looks like whoever had it before me was taking it off and putting it on the camera with a pair a channel locks. Easily an UG rated lens if I bought from KEH. I will most likely be sending it back.

    That's at least two reports we have had of dinged refurb lenses from Oly. My 75 was fine, but it does seem to not be an isolated event.

    I bought E-M1 and 60mm macro from Oly refurb and they looked like they were never used. There is one mint condition silver 45mm 1.8 at popflash for $247:

    ^^^ Thats awful! Has to be an oversight on Olympus's part to let that pass as a item that could be refurbished and re-sold.

    For what it's worth, Olympus asked me to send the lens back for a refund and offered to pay the return shipping. Not any more or less than I expected, although according to the return policy, they do not refund shipping either direction. So, there is that.

    In you initial post you mentioned this would be an UG conditioned item at KEH, and that was my first thought as well when I first saw these images.

    Well, we will all see in several weeks what mine will look like; I ordered a black version tonight for $279.

    Mine is in the mail back to Olympus and I ordered the one above that someone mentioned from Popflash.

    I hope yours comes in better than mine did.

    For whatever it's worth, I did feel like they cared and treated me fine on the phone. I'll probably give them another shot in the future.
