**SOLD** As I've mentioned elsewhere, I bought this kit (pics attached) after seeing the amazing pictures of silver E-P2's with adapted rangefinder lenses. I have only taken it out of the original box that I bought it new in to check out the feel and basic operation. I charged the battery, attached the lens and turned it on. After that, I basically looked around with the LCD and tried to frame some shots (not actually taken) to see how I liked it. I did actuate the shutter once when I went to test the AF ... while in M mode. :redface: It didn't take me long to decide that I really should have gone with my original choice, the GF1 (which I just purchased with a 14-45mm.) Completely a personal taste issue, as many here will tell you how much they love the E-P2.

The original seller (it's a store, but I purchased it through their Ebay account) offered a full refund, but in store credit since it's open box, but not defective. Since I already bought the GF1, I need it in cash. So, here's your chance to get basically a new, harder-to-find silver E-P2 with 17mm for a bit of a discount. I'm hoping for $650 shipped, but there maybe some wiggle room. I would also consider a partial trade including one or more of: LVF-1 or Panny 20mm/f1.7 or maybe a black Oly 17mm/f2.8 (I know, I know, but I just can't put a silver plastic lens on a black GF1.) I would prefer to use Paypal for both our protection and I will only ship to the US (48 contiguous states.)

I may, but it, combined with my GF1 purchase, was more than I had intended to spend right now. Plus, I figured someone here might like a good deal on a silver E-P2 (black ones seem have lower prices, in general, probably due to the popularity of the retro look); a win-win situation.

If you're open to wriggling on the US only (I'm here in Aus) I'm interested :smile:

Sell body only?

Would you consider selling the body separately? I have the 17mm pancake (in silver) already and do not need another.

I'd consider it. I don't really want the 17mm (at least, not in silver), so I'd have to try and sell it separately. So, maybe $450 for the body shipped?

That is exactly what I was thinking would be a fair price. I will take it. (I can not send a pm because I do not have 3 posts yet.) A 17 in mint condition can bring as much as $200 which would yield your original goal of $650. If you wish to move it quickly, a $150 price should accomplish that.
How do I send a paypal payment to an individual? Do you initiate a charge on your end?

edit: just noticed that another member posted a wtb today for a 17 mm in good condition.

Great! Reply to this post and then we can discuss it on PM. I will just give you my Paypal email address and you can choose to a send payment to it.
