For Sale: M 50 f1.7 and 50 f4 macro, F 35-70 f3.5-4.5 bargains- buy two get one free!
Listed: 03-03-2019, 08:25 AM Total Price: 25 Currency: USD Item Location: United States City or State: New York Shipping Destinations: United States 

GX100 sold for $75, now we're just down the lenses!

The lenses for sale are three you all know and love, bargain priced because they have been well loved in turn:

M 50mm F1.7- $25 My most-used lens. This copy has some wear on the paint, and the outer ring of textured material on the focus ring has become loose- as in you can rotate it gently around the ring. When you're actually using it to focus you squeeze it anyway and the whole thing turns as a unit like it's supposed to, so it makes no difference in actual use, but technically must be considered a "defect." There is also a tiny imperfection in the glass on the front element, as shown, and the glass coating has some scuffs. This does not make any difference in image quality that I can tell. Aperture snappy.

M 50mm F4 Macro- $75 Other than a little of the paint wear on textured spots you'd expect on a lens this age, this one's in great shape in all respects.

F 35-70mm f3.5-4.5- $25 The good old "stack of primes." On this copy, glass is good, body is good, but it was sold to me with a little bit of what appears to be sand having already gotten into the lens. This is visible in the focus scale window, and when manually focusing there's a tiny bit of resistance between 4m and infinity that feels like a piece of sand in the mechanism. There's also a touch of corrosion on the mount. So, not quite perfect. Never seemed to affect the autofocus, and I shot thousands of frames with it without being bothered. This lens is always a bargain, but this copy is even moreso.

Additional photos of all items here:

Shipping depends on where you are and what you buy, probably $6-10.

This is also a "buy two get one free" sale- as in, $100 (75+25) gets you all three shipped (separately they total $125 plus another $4-7 each for shipping). Paypal preferred.

Great guy to buy from

I just bought his GX100. He must have run to the post office to send it, and messaged me about the tracking. If I didn't already have a fleet of lenses I'd be buying from him again. Bomb proof packing, too. Thanks Eric.
