        Sorry to put a damper on your thread, but these prices seem a bit higher than the market these days. Admittedly, the majority are with boxes, but these prices seem a little higher than Ffordes, and a lot higher than CEX ... for example.



        FWIW, I'd highly recommend the 70-300 4/3 version for m4/3 bodies; and the 11-22 and 14-54 are both highly-regarded even for m4/3 with converters ...

          It's better to start at a higher price; maybe John is open to offers.

          I very much doubt many (if any) of these items were listed by CEX as they are relatively rare and specialist.

            Better check your facts - CEX has the 11-22, 14-54, 70-300, the original 40-150, an E5, an E3, a few E410s all in stock at the moment. CEX seems to be the primary source, apart from Ffordes, of 4/3 stuff. It even has the 7-14 and the 35-100 at the moment.

              I am genuinely surprised, though I'd personally rather buy from an established forum member of course

                  CEX have been very good to me when descriptions haven't matched expectations. They also clarify if you phone the branch concerned. Camera gear isn't their speciality, which is perhaps why they are frequently cheaper than more specialist concerns, but also why they actually stock some 4/3 items these days.


                  They are very good on refunds, too :-)


                  Other suppliers of secondhand gear don't often buy 4/3 these days - you try getting a quote from MBP, Wex or LCE or ...



                  Anyway, good luck with the sales :-)

                      And I'll add that my E410 still gets an outing every now and then, as does my E1.

                              I have updated the initial post with the items that have sold. I will be revising the prices of the lenses soon, so if you are interested, do keep watching.

                                So folks, I have sold both my wonderful E-5, and the E-400 - which leaves me with some excellent 4/3 lenses to find good homes for.

                                I would much prefer an e-group member here to have one ore more of these bargains off me, rather than sell them to someone random on eBay or Gumtree etc.

                                With this in mind, I have significantly reduced the prices of the lenses I have remaining. Each lens comes complete with its original box, and I have owned them all from new.

                                I have also reduced the asking price of the E-3 if anyone is looking for a back-up body, or perhaps a great starter camera (don't forget there are plenty of lenses to choose from, too!!)

                                If you are interested, please do drop me a message on here, I'll be glad to hear from you.
