    I bought a used (from Adorama) Olympus 14-54mm version 1 and the rubber focus ring is sticky & falling apart..... any clue to who would repair this at the lowest possible price? I bought the lens for $199.00 it seems sharp & overall looks OK..... 1 tiny scratch on front element near edge .... that is it. I could return it ..... but they are hard to find at $225.00 or less.

    Thanks

    But it wouldn't be $225 after the repair. ;) Personally, I would consider putting up a [WTB] ad in the classifieds on this forum. I'm sure somebody has one they'd like to get rid of, and I've always had great experiences with the condition of lenses bought here.
