Re: More Gloom and Doom

Gee Craig that's a gutsy purchase in view of all the gloom and doom!

That lens is on my wish list but I am not game to pull the trigger unless Oly produces a new E-7 with a sensor and AF to do it justice.

Did you purchase new or secondhand? Would love to here your impressions of it and some sample shots once you have got familiar with using it.



I purchased it used.  The lens was offered by Adorama on ebay this past week.  It was a best offer thing.  They asked $3,400.  I offered $2,900 and they took it. I was shocked they accepted the offer. They rated it E+ and have examined it carefully, I can say this was a pretty conservative rating.

The Olympus market is not in good shape when a reputable dealer such as Adorama is selling gear at these prices. I thought I got a great deal, until someone posted a link from E_bay uk where the same lens went for about $2,500.
