You are bidding on an Olympus Zuiko Auto-W 24mm f2.8 lens in OM-mount, with the original Olympus front and rear lens caps and the original Olympus lens case  – plus a new Rainbow Imaging OM to Micro 4/3 adapter. 

This lens is in truly excellent condition.  The front and rear lens elements have no scratches.  A few tiny, light cleaning marks are visible on the front element under magnification, but are invisible to the naked eye (unless your vision is much better than mine!) and have no impact on the stunningly sharp images produced by this lens.  There is no haze, fungus or internal dust.  The focus ring is well-damped through its entire range.  The aperture ring clicks firmly into place at each f-stop.  There is no oil on the iris blades, which snap open and closed easily with a push of the DOF preview button.

The lens barrel looks new, aside from some extremely light wear visible under magnification at the tops of a few of the ridges of the aperture ring.  All of the painted distance and aperture markings are clear and bright.  The mounting flange is clean and shiny.  Overall, the lens looks like it is fresh from the factory.

The optical quality of this lens is excellent.  Wide open, depth of field is extremely shallow and background objects are thrown softly out of focus.  You can also stop the lens down for razor sharpness.  Two sample photos taken with this lens on my Olympus E-PL2 are shown above.  These images are straight out of the camera, with no post-processing. 

Included with this lens are the original front and rear Olympus caps, both of which are also in excellent condition.  The original Olympus lens case is also included, which shows some small wear spots around the top edge.  One of the ribbons that hangs from the inside of the top of the case is frayed – although I’m not really sure WHY this ribbon hangs from the inside of the top of the case in the first place.  It clearly doesn’t do anything to hold the lens in place.

Also included is a new Rainbow Imaging OM to Micro 4/3 adapter in its original packaging.  It has only been used to mount this lens for sample shots to verify its optical quality.

Good luck bidding!  You're going to love this lens!
