Default Olympus Micro 4/3 camera gear for sale

Hi Everyone,

I've decided that I want to take my diving in non-photographic direction for the time being so I'm putting my photo gear up for sale and wanted to offer it to BAUE members before putting it on the boards. The vast majority of this gear, with the exception of the strobes, has been on only 10-15 dives, so has seen very little use. Always rinsed and soaked after diving and well taken care of.

The housing is for an Olympus EPL-1, which is a micro 4/3 camera that offers interchangeable lens' and fast focus, approaching that of a DSLR, and shoots video at 720p. The camera is currently on sale at Amazon for $150 here.

This is a great setup to get into UW photography at a reasonable rate and will be a great step up for anyone shooting with a point and shoot. You can see some of my photos here (they look better at high-rez), most were taken with the wide angle 9-18mm lens and the macro shots of the nudi were taken with the Inon close up adapter for the kit lens. Backscatter did a fairly comprehensive review here.

Please see the prices I'm asking on the list below. Discounts offered for the whole kit or a package of a few different pieces and I'm happy to meet around the Bay Area. I've had a lot of fun taking pictures and having mementos of my dives but want to reallocate some funds for other purposes. Please let me know if you have any questions.
