Items to sell/buy/trade: SELL: Olympus 75-300mm v.II + Access OR TRADE FOR: Panasonic 100-300 v.II

Prices: $300

Location: Oregon

Ships to: US

Description: Selling a lightly used, excellent copy of the Olympus 75-300 f/4.8-6.7 II (version II) of this telephoto zoom. I'm the 2nd owner of this cool relatively small tele-zoom. Am including 3 cool accessories for it, two are 'must have', the 3rd is simply cool. They are a 58mm lens hood (not the original but a very nice and functional Tamron lenshood), and a padded OP/TECH Lens Pouch/protective case. The optional accessory is a Canon 500T double-sided close-up lens, designed to give telephoto-zooms superb Macro capabilities. (The 500T is the predecessor to Canon's lauded 500D lens. Lens hoods are necessary but not included by Olympus and the original lenshood, supposedly, is gargantuan in size.)

The lens is actually quite fantastic for many applications - but the only reason I'm selling it is because I intend to replace it with a copy of Panasonic's slightly larger but basically equivalent 100-300mm tele zoom - because using that zoom along with by GX9 body will give me Dual I.S.

v.II of the Panasonic lens (the one I want) tends to cost slightly more, used, than the 75-300 - although when I throw in the custom Canon 500T close-up lens, the two are close to the same real-world used value.

Supposedly, if you have a newer Olympus body, my 75-300 vII will do certain things which it can't on my GX9 (including ProCapture) so, all things considered, though the Zuiko lens I'm selling (or trading!) works excellently on my Lumix camera, it should work even better on an Olympus body. I'm hoping that someone out there who owns the 100-300 v.II but has been using it on an Olympus body, has reached the same conclusion I have - and would also be interested in a trade. If so - please get in touch.

MORE DETAILED PICTURES (including the Pouch/Case and the Canon Close-up Lens) will be posted within the very near future.
(NOTE: the attached pictures show the lens + lenshood mounted on my GX9; the camera is not for sale but the lens is!)

Here are two photos of the OP/TECH lens pouch for this lens + lens hood. The overall size of the lens + hood is surprisingly bulky but this relatively small and nicely padded pouch fits, holds and protects the whole thing nicely. It's one of the nicer-built lens cases/pouches I've ever used.

NOTE: one of the cool aspects to this pouch - it has a zippered bottom compartment for filters.
