View Full Version : HELP! Used E5

15th July 2013, 08:31 AM

I just came across a used E5 body, sold by a (serious) retail. Item description: "A". Price tag 8000 SEK (796 with today's exchange rate), including 6 months guarantee, extra battery and remote control RM-CB1. This sounds like a reasonable price to me, would you agree? (Lowest retail price I found in EURO zone is ~12000 SEK, Germany).

Will have a detailed look at the camera in a few days. Anything particular I should check, in addition to the shutter count?

Lowest I can find here is 1019, so looks a really good price dependant on the shutter count. Hope this helps.

If possible take CF & SD cards with you one to check CF pins the other to take shots from both types just to make sure both operate. But with 6 mth cover you should be OK. Check different f settings and shutter speeds. Best of luck with it.

Except from flash shoe plastic missing, the body tuned out well meeting the "A" description and furthermore with as low as 1437 shutter actuations meant it was not a difficult decision. I will post some photos, in near future hopefully.

Looking forward to your shots with your new weapon.
