Anything can be sold.  Ebay proves that.

Your lenses and cameras are like cars--they lose money the minute you drive them out of the dealer's lot.  Same for camera gear.

Cameras lose value faster--the minute the new model comes out.

Now the Olympus problem/opportunity is that the there are no cameras for the entry and mid-level buyers.  No need for lenses.  You are selling into a limited market.

It is a buyer's market.  Great used gear is now available at prices that were unthinkable only a year ago. I have one SHG lens and I am looking for another.  I never dreamed I would own even one SHG.

Buying used means that you will not have the most modern kit, but ask yourself, do you have a kit that is better than your skills?
