Re: Broke my first m43 lens :O

Had exactly the same with my first, metal-mount, 7-year-old 12-32 mm, carried it whenever I went out in my pants pocket on an E-PM2, E-PL7, E-PL9, GX80, GX9, E-M5 III, and PEN F. Got my most used lens. I had even to re-attach the Zoom ring with double-sided tape around 2 years ago. I simply sold it for parts/experimental use, got 25 EUR for it and bought a used one in like-new condition plastic-mount for 100 EUR at The site was full of these lenses, probably practically all de-kitted from people who got it with their cameras.

Here is my classified ad in the DSLR-Forum of Germany. The lens is already sold.

7 years is a good age for such a kit lens, it served very well for me.

Simply get a de-kitted one from the used market.
