Really? ... then Adorama owes me some money. We don't need a tape for this one since I kept all the emails of the transaction I spoke of. Here's what I sold to Adorama:

Olympus 50mm Macro f2 - LN, used twice. Buy it at Adorama for $499 new.
Olympus Adaptor FT to MFT - LN - used twice. Buy it at Adorama for $146 new.
Olympus Lens Hood for above Macro lens - LN Buy it at Adorama for $18 new.

TOTAL: $663 ..... I was offered $250 for it all. Seems like about 38% of the retail value.

Adorama's Jacob Z. ex. 2043 told me that Adorama pays 50% of mint condition equipment upon inspection. If you split the cost of the lens in half you get $250, or 50%. BUT, apparently items like the adaptor which would work on the more desirable MFT systems was only worth.... well, NOTHING! And the lens hood I might as well thrown away since it didn't factor into anything either. Here's the quote number: 1284736

Ball is in your court.
