- olympus 4/3rds camera s/h value?
another one of those ‘what’s my camera worth’ threads.Posted 5 years ago
i have an E-3 with a really nice 12-60 2.8-4 zoom. i have no idea if it’s worth much as pro canon gear is more my thing. is there a good place to sell rather than evil-bay?
it’s probably only shot a couple of 1000 frames and underneath the thin layer of dust where it sat on a shelf for a year is mint.
should i try and sell together or separately?
I’ve got an E3, it’s an ace camera. The only waterproof lens I’m missing is the 12-60, as I use a 14-50 Panasonic lens instead.
The prices Mr Smith puts up sound about right, you can find out the shutter count if you follow the procedure here.

Nice veedubba. I have the 35mm macro too. Not quite sure how I feel about it. It’s a brilliant lens but you have to get so close it feels like microscopy, and the DoF is ridiculous. Can’t hand hold much when working up close. I’d like to try a teleconverter to allow me to be a bit further back when framing up.
I too bought an FL36 that seemed really cheap, but turns out the more expensive ones were FL36R. I haven’t felt the need for remote flash yet though so not that bothered 🙂

The OM-D is nice, but I think I’ll get either a GF2 or an E-PM1 as a family camera in the next 6 months. My wife likes the SLR but wants something a bit more portable when she’s out and about, and I’d like that too. The 510’s small with the pancake on, but still not truly pocketable.
I like the 35mm as a portrait lens Molgrips but yes, taking any serious macro images is a little scrubbing-in-the-undergrowth-ish! I’m not anywhere serious enough to need a remote flash, but being able to bounce and set everything up rather than using the udnerpowered onboard flash is fantastic.
PePPeR – I was just offering to do MrSmith a favour by taking it off his hands with minimal hassle 😉Posted 5 years ago
My wife went for a toughened Sony compact when we were shopping for her. It does its job well enough, lives in a handbag and the sand can be washed out of it when we take it to the beach…
VD I have the Sigma 30mm f1.4 as a portrait lens. It’s a bit frustrating – when it finds focus it’s amazing, but it often doesn’t. I got it for low light, but it does a poor job in low light and the narrow DoF just makes matters worse.
Agree about the swivel and bounce flash – it’s the first thing you need if you want to take pics inside.Posted 5 years ago
My families new favourite camera to pinch off me is my Kodak Playsport ZX5
They’ve been taking it everywhere to see if they can break it! 😉
It’s a seriously good little camera, the video is great and it even takes good pictures within its limitations! The main factor being we can take it with us when we go to the beach/windsurfing/cycling. ETC!
Mr Smith I’ll outbid you at £30 😉Posted 5 years ago
Someone linked to the Biofos site, and that’s somewhere that’s quite interesting in that he’s tested a load of his old OM lenses. I quite fancy getting a few OMs off eBay and an adaptor for the 4/3 mount. Manual focus but they seem to be a cheap way to get some excellent quality lenses.
My wife does a lot of product photography (she designs knitewear) so she likes the quality of image that comes from the larger sensor of the SLR, hence the thinking about the m4/3 CSC. A tough camera would be a good idea, but we’ve got old compacts and camcorders coming out of our ears (an exaggeration, but you know what I mean).
On paper the 30mm Sigma sounds great Molgrips, shame about the focussing.Posted 5 years ago
VD, it’s still capable of amazing things.. just not quite the things I was expecting! Can’t really explain why I love this picture of my sister in law and niece so much:

Of the Pens I would like an EP-3 (or PL-3).
Like the look of the PL line, but with the PL-3 Olympus have removed the built-in flash. Similar to Panasonic simplifying the GF range with every successive model, seemingly so they can have space for a new line (GX).
PL-2 is still available in a few places, it seems.Posted 5 years ago
