Description: Cleaning up, reducing duplication in my setup. Help me clean out my closet!

Panasonic GX9: $400. SOLD. I bought this mainly for use with the 20mm f/1.7. No doubt in my mind that the 20mm focusing is more surefooted on Panasonic bodies, but apart from that I just never really loved the camera. Great condition, only 895 shutter actuations. Includes charger, cables, strap, OEM battery, and two extra Wasabi batteries.

Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8: $375. SOLD. My main lens. It has taken a beating from years of use, which you can see from the brassing on the zoom ring. It took a short fall onto a gravel path when my camera strap broke in Ireland, which left a ding in the lens body. I bought a second 12-40mm as a backup when I returned to the US but this one just... kept working great. Focuses as quickly as it always has, photos are as sharp as they've always been. Now I have two perfectly usable 12-40mm copies, and it's mainly vanity that has me selling the dinged-up one. If you want the pretty one, I suppose we can work something out, let me know. Includes hood and pouch.

Olympus 17mm f/1.7: $235. Bought it because I loved the 20mm focal length but did not love its focusing speed. The 17mm is a much faster focusing lens, but I just like the look of the 20mm's images better and can work around its relative slowness on Olympus bodies. Excellent condition, comes with all original packaging.

Panasonic 45-150mm f/4-5.6 MEGA OIS: $50. SOLD. Bought my father a G5 2-lens kit ages ago, and he never really liked the tele. Missing front cap, but comes with hood.

Interested in the 12-40. Can you post pix of the “pretty one”? What would you want for that? Thanks
