Massdrop is back on again with a new lens offering. It is the new condition Olympus M. Zuiko ED 12-40mm f/2.8 lens offered for $560 with free US shipping. International shipping appears to hover around $10 but I can’t check all the countries in the universe 🙂

There is no mention of warranty in the listing, and this is the international version of the lens. In other words, a grey market from the perspective of the US market.

In new condition at authorized Olympus USA dealers this goes for $1000 (eg B&H, Adorama). Used prices start at $559 in condition “V” at Adorama
