    Olympus Pent FT 42mm f/1.2

    closet cleaning, this is a trial balloon to judge interest:

    FT camera is in very good condition, no scratches or dings, could use a CLA

    42mm f/1.2 lens is perfect, no hazing, dust, scratches, etc.

    comes with: original manual, case, lens cap, box and yes, the warranty card!

    camera: $250

    lens $800

    package: $950

    in NYC, prices are net to me

    Re: Olympus Pent FT 42mm f/1.2

    The pen F 42/1.2, especially a sample without hazing (that is due to the front element separation), is very hard to find and is a superb fit, optically and ergonomically to the Panasonic GH series and the current Sony NEX-7.

    If I did not already have one, I would have grabbed yours, John!

    what I thought was the warranty card is a proof of legal import...in 1968

    I thought it is an excellent price (for any buyer) for this sample!

    Here is a very fair review of this lens on a NEX:

    Sorry, has it gone up? I thought it was $800? Or is this a really expensive adapter?
