      Re: 50-200 SWD Lens


      Are we talking about the SWD version?

      According to my research there were no such prices recently on eBay for the SWD version (I checked the completed listings:

      http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Cameras-Ph...d&LH_PrefLoc=2

      Anyway, I am not ready to further lower the price for my lens yet.
      I need the cash, just not that badly.

        The western world is obsessed with getting the best deal. Its our #1 sport. Whoever gets the most expensive item cheapest, wins! It goes well with our #2 sport, which is buying stuff.

        At one point, I was super obsessed with getting the cheapest airplane ticket. Checking, waiting, checking, waiting. Then I realised - how many hours have I spent doing this?? £530 or £460? Even at minimum wage, I bet you're better off doing something productive than try to find these bargains.

            I agree with the sentiment but everyone likes to claim a consumer victory!

                  But I had to wait for the right deal to come around. I guess it all depends on who else wants the lens at the time and how much they think it's worth. Good to be a buyer because you can wait for the right item to come along. As a seller you can only protect yourself from a cheap sale by setting a high reserve. I recall an auction recently for the 16-50mm SWD where I was the high bidder but didn't hit the reserve

                  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290867074835

                  I missed on a good bargain but the seller protected himself. However it put me off bidding for the relisted item.

                    my bargain found in my local market place, the swd was an ex int'l warranty so it has to be slighly lower than local Olympus warranty

                    well done, and for me the valuation of it has some part before decision....now we can easily check slidoo.com then add to watch list so we shouldnt check it everyday but the opposite we will get notification if our "price level" been posted
