I am reluctantly selling my lovely copy of the above lens as I am using an Olympus OM1 for my bird photography.

The lens was bought from Camera Centre in January this year, and is in mint condition.
I have not posted any images as, in effect, it is a new lens - it has had absolute minimal use.

It comes boxed, complete with caps and hood, and everything else that came in the box new.

Collection or a mutually convenient meet is possible - I live in South Warwickshire.

UK buyers only - payment by bank transfer or Paypal gift.

My price is 1250 delivered.
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

How does the MFT system compare for bird photography?

Gotta K-3iii now, had a K-S2, K50 and so suffering from a relapse and so buying digital camera kit.
Previous addiction has resulted in using Zeniths, Yashicamat, Chinons, Minoltas, Samsungs, Fujis, Cosina, Kodak, Lumix, Canon, Nikon and Pentax etc etc - have tried most makes in the past 50 years. Love cameras - love taking photos even more

The main advantages are size and weight, 2 x full frame equivalence, and more specialist autofocus system on the Olympus OM1.

I must say that the Olympus lens that is anything close to the quality of the 150-450mm is 6700 !!

Lens is now available again - buyer has had change of heart.

I repeat - the lens is as new.

Just got one (delivery this afternoon) in the Black Friday offers, certainly a beast compared to my other 400mm and 500mm film lens

Don't forget the focus limiter. I normally have to it set to 6m to infinity. When I first got it I was on safari and thought the lens was faulty as I just could not acquire focus on hyenas near the car. I then realised the limiter was what causing me to think the lens was faulty.
