    Description
    I'm doing some gear rearranging to simplify and cover costs. The Nocticron is an absolutely incredible lens, but I prefer the reach of the Oly 75 and don't feel the need to own both. I've also learned that carrying three bodies so I don't have to switch lenses sounds clever but gets heavy.

    All the stuff I am selling is in 9 condition on the FredMiranda scale. I am the original owner of the E-M1 and Nocticron but the E-M5 I bought used. The E-M5 has the usual bezel crack, which Olympus says is cosmetic only and is unnoticeable unless you look for it. The person I recently bought it from at FM did not disclose this, and I don't blame him because to me it is a non-issue that all my E-M5s (4 of them in total) have had.

    The E-M1, E-M5 kit, and Nocticron each come with box and all accessories.

    I'll post photos if the stuff doesn't sell within a couple days, but there are no marks/scratches/dents etc for me to show.

    The E-M5 has 2,730 actuations.

    The E-M1 has 4,587 actuations.

    Both bodies have Gariz soft buttons attached. I use them on all my cameras. Read about them here: https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=16951

    I can remove them before shipping if you want. Please note: If you decide to remove them yourself, use dental floss to gently separate them from the shutter release button. Don't try to pull them off with brute force!

    If you want to see how my Nocticron performs, look at the samples here: https://www.mu-43.com/showthread.php?t=63080

    The following is posted on all my lens sales. Please take note:
    Many lenses, including new and expensive ones, have small amounts of internal dust or decentering. I do not rigorously test my lenses for these issues as I consider them to be unimportant and not worth my time. I am not a big photo store like B&H, and I will not accept returns because the buyer has determined that such "issues" are present. If you are concerned about these things, I suggest that you buy new from a retailer with a good return policy or otherwise find a seller who explicitly states that he or she certifies the lens against such issues.

    Hate to get off topic, but what're going to end up shooting with Amin? I remember that picture of you daughter holding your E-M1 and thought to myself 'those are his two babies'

    My only real baby is my daughter :). Right now my plan is to end up with either the E-M1 or (more likely) one of my two E-M5s plus the Pana 14/2.5, Pana Leica 25/1.4, Oly 75/1.8, Oly 14-150, and maybe an Oly 9-18 (I already have all of those except the 9-18). I also have a Sony A7 and Sony Zeiss 55/1.8. Eventually I also plan to get a 35mm equivalent for one of those two systems, but I'm undecided as to which one.

    EDIT: E-M5 kit has sold as well and will ship out first thing tomorrow morning. Someone please make me a good offer on the E-M1 so I can ship that out tomorrow morning too!

    It's actually still available. No reply from minh2pac yet. Two other buyers said "I'll take it" but then didn't have the money to pay for it once I withdrew it from Ebay listing :doh:. And I'm getting a bunch of PMs saying "Is it still available", "I'm interested", or "This is tempting".

    Please, all: I am not going to reply to any more PMs unless they say "I'll take it and can pay $950 by regular PayPal (no eCheck, Gift, trades, local cash exchange, or anything else). Thanks for understanding.
