Default Olympus 35mm Marcro (Refurb)

Received my macro lens yesterday and am pretty happy with the condition. It actually looks brand new. This was my first refurb purchase which saved me 50 bucks over a new one. I'd buy a refurb again for sure. Olympus warrants it for 90 days and Cameta Camera adds three months to that. Now waiting for my Viltrox adaptor so I can check it out on my E-PL2. Will post some pics when I get it.

Congrats, James.

You must be getting anxious. I know I'd be.

Yes I am but I don't expect the adaptor to be here until late next week. I ordered something from China before and it took about two weeks to get it.

....gotta get out with that new lens James, maybe take a nap, I do that to pass the time; kinda like going to bed early so the fishing trip in the morning comes faster.

I am looking forward to see results from the 35.

I find it best not to think about it. Mmm, I wonder why I'm going out to the mailbox four times a day.

I'm looking forward to seeing some images with it!. Please let us know how well that adapter works and how fast the AF with the combo.

Oh I will. Now I'm thinking about buying the Olympus macro light for it. It's 51 bucks and the reviews are good.

I got my camera refurbished from them, and so far so good. The only "defective" part that I've noticed is the one standing behind where the viewfinder ought to be.

I think that's the case with many of us.
