ZD 14-35 mm f/2 lens available
Aug 3, 2013

I see an Olympus 14-35 mm lens available on ebay for $1200. That's half of MSRP. I don't know anything about the seller or condition. There are photos of the lens. Ends in 3 hours.

I'd be interested in this if I didn't already own one.

I own that one as well, and picked it up for $1,173 from Olympus late last year as a manufacturer refurbished lens.  No regrets, a truly versatile lens I use regularly.

..and what would that cost?,, that is where they get you,  I lost  my 14-54 II lens hood, it fell down a hill in Alaska, and I not only did I have have to to find it, it was really a pain , the big name stores. InNYC only had the 14-54 original, , I finally had to order one from Hong Kong.., but aside you think this a good price if I wanted it?

I even logged in to my E-Bay account at five minutes haha. Thought about it but I really don't have any business with a lens like that. I hope whoever got it enjoys it:) .

More than likely they will.  We got hit with a supercell this afternoon with 80 mph wind, hail and 2.5" of rain in fifteen minutes.  I shot the storm with the E-5 and ZD 14-35, the one I went to first.  Now that the power is back, I need to upload the shots.

That was an excellent price.
And it all happened while I was asleep.

No, actually I am not really in the market for a 14-35mm lens.

I am enjoying the versatility (especially the 2mm extra on the wide side) of my ZD12-60 too much.

(That lens, however, is now in repair.  Now if it was beyond repair, I would reconsider my options.)

Was that a buy it now or really only one bidder interested in it at that price?

Having just picked up a Losmandy GM8 sadly I have some Olympus gear for sale myself.

My last E3, 50-200SWD, and a nice little 50 macro...I'm a little torn about letting it go but really looking forward to using the GM8.

Might end up selling my Celestron CGEM...depending upon how things work out...the CGEM is just a beast to lug around in a car...hoping the much lighter GM8 is more car friendly.

Anyhow...someone did get a great deal on the 14-35.
