Yeah. I'm selling this. It's been really good for me but I'm going to jump systems!

I know most people here aren't interested in something like the four thirds system or Olympus cameras... but... why not post it on here as well?

This is proven gear: I recently shot for Game Developer Magazine with this set, and I do some pretty decent cosplay photography too!

Olympus E-5 DSLR body - $1500
Olympus 12-60mm f2.8-4 SWD zoom lens - $700
Olympus 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 ED zoom lens - $650
Olympus FL-50R flash - $300
Olympus FL-36R flash - $120
Metz 48 AF-1 flash - $140

The body and lenses are all splash-proof and dust-proof. The flashes are fully compatible with the wireless TTL flash system on the latter Olympus cameras. Everything is in near perfect condition (except for the FL-36R, which has a battery door that can fully detach from the body as opposed to just hinge away; this doesn't change the fact that batteries are totally secure in the unit. It looks and feels perfectly normal when in operation.)

I know: kind of a shot in the dark thinking anyone here would be interested in this stuff, but... hey! Maybe there's someone else out there in a different way of doing stuff...

Ended up selling it all.

It's dying, but honestly... I miss it. Those lenses kicked so much rear. I miss them, honestly! There are some instances where I find myself frustrated that I don't have a large enough DOF with this full frame sensor, or wishing I could have real edge to edge sharpness without spending 2000 bucks...
