Items to sell/buy/trade: Olympus OM-System Zuiko Auto-S 50mm f1.8

Prices: $37

Location: Near Charlotte, NC

Ships to: CONUS

Description: Wanted to offer this up here first. This is a really nice copy of the Zuiko 50/1.8. It's my understanding that this is a late version; perhaps 1986-ish. This is based on the markings on the name ring. It is clearly a multi-coated copy.

Cosmetically, it is near mint. No signs of damage and minimal signs of use. The focusing is smooth; and while a bit firm compared to say Nikon lenses of the same age, it focuses exactly the same as the other one I have. The aperture is dry snappy.

Optically, it is at least excellent; the only flaw that I found is a faint mark that appears to be on the front element, near the word "Zuiko." I only found it by chance, and it was difficult to photograph. You can just see it in the 8th and 9th images. There is a slight amount of internal dust (very common for any lens this age), which you can see in the 9th and 10th images. I doubt that either of these issues would impact image quality; you can see how clear the view is in the 7th image.

It comes with generic front and rear caps as shown.

In general, I try to be clear enough that returns are unnecessary; please be sure of condition and feel free to ask any questions you have.
