    For sale is my 2 month old 14-42PZ lens that came as part of my GX1 Kit. The lens is in excellent condition and has only been lightly used.

    I have seen no evidence of the blurring issue widely reported with some copies of this lens and have attached 100% crops of a page of text taken at 42mm and at the suspect shutter speeds to hopefully dispel any concerns.

    It's a great lens in my opinion, really sharp at the wide end, very small and light and extremely useful for video. Had a lot of bad press, but a decent copy like this makes an excellent travel zoom. I'm only selling it to fund the purchase of a PL 25 1.4, as I'm more of a prime shooter.

    I'm after £220 which includes Royal Mail special delivery, it will be very well packaged and shipped the next working day after I receive payment (Paypal preferred). This is the first item I've sold on Mu43 but have sold numerous Sony and Minolta lenses in the past on eBay - see pic of my feedback details below.

    Final reduction to £200 before it goes to eBay.

    Bit surprised at the lack of interest so far. The lens retails for £290, and this version definitely has no double imaging issues.

    Am I missing something?

    Possibly, yes, as SRS Microsystems are selling these new at £199 BIN on eBay at the moment. The price on this lens has fallen a lot of late.

    Thanks for pointing that out!

    They do want £7.99 for delivery though:)

    I also have a good copy of this lens and love it. Considering a new copy may have the blur problem makes me think your known good copy is the better deal. I have owned the famous 14-45mm and don't miss it after getting the PZ. It makes a super portable kit when coupled with a fast prime!
