    I marked my previous sale COMPLETED on this a bit too quickly (hadn't sold this lens yet) so I'm re-listing it. I find that I am really favoring primes and since I won't be traveling for many months I don't need any zooms. Price include shipping CONUS and PayPal fees.

    Sharpest and IMHO best of the kit lenses. It terrific shape. Metal mount. Comes with bag, front and rear caps and UV filter. No hood (bought it that way).
    $180

    Couldn't agree more. I got this lens a while back and have taken it out twice and have got keepers both times. Good Luck With Your Sale.

    Yeah, it is a very nice lens. I tend to shoot it at the WA end mostly and having the 14 and the 20 pretty much suits my needs in that regard. That said, if it doesn't sell I won't be particularly disappointed to keep it. :biggrin:

    Any idea how this performs on an EP-2? Is it even compatible?

    Are you interested in trading for several manual lenses? Let me know.

    Don't know about how it performs but AFAIK it is compatible.

    It should be compatible, and has the OIS on/off switch, which allows you to use OIS for movies, and IBIS or OIS for stills. The Oly bodies also shoot quicker with IBIS off (less shutter lag) meaning if you use the lens OIS, the oly will be just a touch quicker using the lens IS instead of body IS.

    Very cool. Thanks for the info folks!

    Balancing video OIS and better image quality over $$$ savings and size of 14-42mm Mkii I just got. Ugh.


    thanks!

    That is the dance! This is a good lens, though, if you are OK with the size. It's not that big anyway -- just bigger than the Oly kit.

    Can you comment on the focus speed as compared to the 14-140mm (on your G2)?

    I currently have the 14-140mm but never really use it out past 45mm, so I'm thinking of selling it and getting a 100-300mm along with a 14-45mm.

    Interested. Need to sell my EPL-2 first though, unfortunately.

    It's a great lens, focuses fast and is very quite. perfectly compatible with the Olympus bodies (just decide if you want to use the IBIS or the stabilization on the lens itself and turn the other off).

    Only reason I'm selling is I don't use it.
