Now that is a bargain :)

BTW, single lens kit is 299, not as keenly priced.

'tis indeed a bargain.

almost makes it worth buying for the kit lenses and flogging the body only on ebay?!?

:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

Just paid 440 for the same kit,Although I did get a spare battery and Olympus case in with the deal.

Still probably would have been cheaper to pay 349 and buy the battery and case separate.

Thanks for the link - I've just ordered this as my first DSLR after shopping around for the E-510 twin lens kit for weeks now.

What makes it seem even more of a bargain is that they have the E-410 with only the 14-42 for 100 more!! Why would anyone buy that?? :D

I hope its all it's cracked up to be - unfortunately we have no one around here so I can actually handle one (it seems our Jessops only want to sell Nikon, Canon and Sony these days), and the only real reservation I have are the reports of the poor viewfinder; but time will tell... at that price, I don't think you can really go wrong.

Well you've certainly bagged yourself a bargain there DekHog, the E-510 is a superb camera.

Enjoy!

They have sold out - they called me today to say they couldn't fulfill my order due to no stock/discontinued... their online ordering system doesn't update itself at nights, would you believe!!

Had to go to eBay for the same thing at the same price - thought I'd better before no one had any left and I'd be kicking myself for waiting any longer and not getting one at all.
