Help with a broken lens mount?
9 months ago

I dropped my camera bag (damn) and the mount ring on the basic 14-42 lens cracked. I had been looking to get another everyday lens for my e520 anyway, so it's not a huge loss since it's such an inexpensive lens.  But, if I could find a replacement mount to repair it myself, I could sell it in working condition and at least offset some of the cost of an upgrade.  Hate to see an otherwise full working lens go to waste.

This site has what seems to be the part I need, but is listing it as unavailable: http://www.uscamera.com/vh1925.htm

On a related note, debating the 14-54 which I can get used for $200 or so. Seems like a great all-purpose lens from what I've read.

Any thoughts?  Thanks.

Olympus E-520
