    Default FS: VA-1, 40-150 gen 1, HLD-4

    Well, other than my IR converted E-3, I've moved to micro 4/3, so the last of my original four thirds gear needs to find a new home.

    I will be posting to eBay shortly, but wanted to offer it here just in case one of the "faithful" was interested.

    This slips in place instead of the OE eyecup on the E-1, E-3, E-5, E-30, and at least the E-520 bodies, allowing a view at 90 degrees or from the side, with 1x and 2x magnification. I suspect it fits the other E-series cameras with the two adapters, but AFAIK, none of the m4/3 cameras. This piece is absolutely mint; I never used it. Includes both eyepiece adapters and the case. Asking $100.

    This is the larger first generation 40-150. Lighter to handle than the 50-200, and larger max aperture than the later version. My experience showed it to be indistinguishably as sharp as the 50-200 and easier to hand-hold. Exc++ condition, few marks on the hood only. Includes box, manual, caps, and hood. Asking $50.

    This gives a longer power supply (and better power for focusing on some of the lenses) as well as a beefier grip and a second set of controls for vertical shooting. It fits the E-3, E-30, and E-5. It is in LN- condition, including the box, manual, terminal cap, and AA battery adapter/holder. I will include two third-party Oly equivalent batteries that have only been through a couple charge cycles. Asking $50.

    All prices are plus actual shipping via USPS Priority Mail, which I would expect to be in the $12 range. I will absorb PayPal charges. I can usually get things shipped within 48 hours (except on weekends). Please PM me with any questions or if you need/want any pictures of the items that I haven't posted.
