Appears USED and is DEFECTIVE

  • Summary: This lens arrived thrown into a shipping box with no Olympus box, no warranty, no instructions. I kept it several days as it was actually a gift to me from my husband. We ordered the lens attachments that are made to attach to this lens.

  • Summary: OK, when I bought my EPL2 back in 2011, it came with a 14-42mm II. It went dead one and half year later with the problem of “please check the status of a lens” prompted once trying to zoom pass 30mm (approx) with long motor noises within the lens.
