    Yes, this is the kit lens from the E-M5 package, shipped on April 13 - absolutely like new, because it is! Comes with caps, warranty card.

    I've taken about 10 shots with it in doors and concluded it's a nice versatile lens, but duplicates much of what I already have.

    I'll include a copy of the packing slip for warranty purposes - and you can always contact me here if need be.

    $389 OBO.

    Paypay Gift (check my record here and ebay (westoniii)). Ask me for a shipping quote - I ship at cost and always insure. Will ship internationally.

    I'm tempted. how much faster is the af compared to an adapted 12-60?

    I have not handled or owned the 12-60, so I can't compare from direct experience. However, I can compare to other m43 lenses: as fast as the Oly 12mm. I believe this lens could be the fastest m43 lens out there (at least on Oly bodies - can't comment on Panny's). Certainly Oly's speed claims (fastest!) are based on this lens.

    I've seen video's with the E-P3 and E-M5 using the 12-60: they seemed to take about .75-1.0s to focus. The FW for the 12-60 has not been optimized for Contrast AF, like some other 4/3 lenses.

    Thanks for asking!

    This is a great lens for video and is matched perfectly with the OMD weather sealing and operation. Sure you want to sell?

    I'm never sure about selling! However, in this case, I justified the leap from E-P3+vf2 to E-M5 by figuring a 'net' after rebate and profit from selling the 'unneeded' zoom. I've never kept the kit zoom in the past...but this one is tempting. We'll see what the market says.
