p.1 #1 · Zuiko 35-70mm f3.6 worth?


I am interested in selling my Zuiko 35-70mm f3.6 (original hood and case included) but I am not sure how much it is worth. Any guesses? Would really appreciate your help

It's an imperfect measure, but based on 14 recent(ish) Ebay sales, the average price is $118.35USD with a standard deviation of $34.60.

Most of those were bare lenses in Ex or better condition.

What it's worth is more difficult to say, since it's a pretty neat lens!

I see them in the $150 to $200 range, the higher end when including the hood.

I have one "spare" Zuiko f/3.6 35-70mm, too.

Since yesterday, because I was able to buy the Zuiko f/2.8 35-80mm.

Payed EUR 652,79 including shipping to Berlin. Finally, after having ignored several offers on ebay in the amount of EUR 1.000,-- or above.

To offset my expenses I am going to sell a few other lenses now.

Can hardly wait to try that great lens. Might take a month or so, when it will arrive here in China (Guangzhou).

Looking at my collection it is obvious that I am a 99 % prime guy, too.

So, if a Zoom wants to stay in my bag for good it better has to be good - to measure up or be equal to my primes.

I think the Zuiko f/2.8 35-80mm has that potential.

Congratulations Idurita ! I'm sure you will enjoy this lens. Let us know what you think about when you receive it !

About the 35-70/3.6 : 150-200 $ seems to me a bit too high. I had mine (on ebay France) for less than 60 euros (with hood, near mint), and since, I saw other transactions for the same price.

Nice score on the 35-80/2.8. That's about the only oly zoom I'd ever even consider really wanting.

I might be on the high end, as the last time I was looking was right after the 5D2 release and it was a popular unit due to it's parfocal design, which lends itself well to movie-making. Demand must have gone down since then...

Actually i believe the low price was due to a mistake of the seller. He had uploaded a lot of photographic stuff, among them a few expensive Leica items. Everything appeared under the category "Leica" including this Zuiko lens. I was only able to find the lens by using ebay's internal "search" engine instead of going by category.

There were at the end 22 offers, but I think only 9 bidding persons. As usual I did submit my offer within the last 15 seconds, to give a challenger as less time to react as possible.

650 Eu isn't particularly cheap on the OM 35-80/2.8, it's about market price. the last few I saw sell were a seller than had I think 5 new in the box, being sold for $800/ea. I have seen a couple go for more since then but not too much more. Lens$db probably has a listing for it too. (JCowell's site)

I think you're talking US market price then. Us Europeans usually pay more, unfortunately.

Yep, Euro land is more expensive, especially nowadays. I have seen the 4 "brand new" lenses on offer for $ 800,-- last year. But that was a rare exception. The lens is going now for 1.000,-- or more. I think getting it for 650,-- is a bargain.

Right now there is a Sinar version of this lens - offered for EUR 2.167,84 !!!

Anyone knows what is the difference between the "normal" Zuiko f/2.8 35-80mm ED
and the "SINAR-version ?

It definitely has a different mount to be attached to the Sinar camera body.

But that would not justify the high price point of more than 2.000,--.

Any other difference ?

$800 USD is not that much of an exception. Besides those 4 I've seen others on ebay sell in that range. 650EU is a fair price but not really a screaming deal, in my opinion. But in any case, enjoy the lens and post some shots!

( Even at zuiko.com, there's one, $1400 USD is why it hasn't sold (that's well above market price). )

That seller is out to lunch on that Sinar version price. Most of the stuff they have listed is crazily priced, and wont' sell at those prices.

The SINAR is identical, AFAIK. It's just been converted to SINAR mount.

The Olympus SINARON lenses (35/2.8shift, 24/2, 24/3.5shift and 35-80/2.8) are identical to the Zuiko lenses including the mount. Sinar has produced various lens boards for its Sinarcam digital camera to fit lenses from different companies incl. Nikon, Mamiya, Hasselblad. The Olympus Sinaron lenses were produced from 09/1994 to 09/1995; see:
