Now that I am feeling happy with the E3 I was wondering about selling off the E1. I bought it in 2006 and have used it as a hobby camera so it is in very good condition and low use. Would people be interested? and what would it be worth do you think? I don't do Ebay (no history and so forth) and would prefer to sell to an enthusiast who knows what it can and can't do. What is your advice.

E-1's have been going for a wide range of prices on eBay - I picked one up for 195 but have seen them go for 300 in the last month. The numbers on offer do appear to be increasing - presumably as a result of the E-3 shipping in quantity now.

If you don't have another E-system body I would keep the E-1 if you can afford to as its probably worth more to you as a second/back-up body than you would get selling it. But if you don't really want it I would suggest selling quickly as the price will only go down.

I'd be keeping hold of the E-1 Peter and have it as your backup body as Derek suggests. I am going to be keeping my E-510 (but selling the E-400) as my backup.

Thank you, but I also have a E500 as backup. ;) I'd swap that for E510 if I get the chance later. The E1 is first choice to go.
