How much to ask for damaged Oly 45?
Sep 9, 2012

Unfortunately took a fall with the Oly 45 on my OMD and although I did my best to shield the camera the lens basically took all the impact (not a scratch on the camera). There's some minor damage on the front of the barrel, the MF ring no longer works, and I guess an element must have moved as the lens is now soft/blurry towards the edges wide open and at large apertures.The AF still works, no visible shatters on the glass either. I like glass perfect so this has to go.

Will likely just buy a new one again since I am sure repairing will cost just as much. Plan to just list this locally but wondering what would be fair to ask for it? Bought it for $400. I'm thinking something like $80-90 range is fair, any input?
