Re: Four thirds sell of!

There does seem to be a lot of kit for sale/sold.....I am slightly guilty of this.

I upgraded my kit, so I sold the unused items. Other forum members have done the same thing. In fact several of my lenses came from forum members.

That said I have seen a lot of new members join and then sell their equipment and leave.....this is a bit strange and annoying. There is eBay for that kind of activity.

Regarding other users knowing something....I doubt it. There are several other sites that post rumours, some of which I read, but most members on this forum are interested in what they have, or would like, and try to get feedback and improve.

Re: Four thirds sell of!

Hi,

I am selling some of my gear as we have a new baby on the way, plus having a 2 year old as well means I've not done as much photography as i'd like; apart from the family stuff of course. I sold my 90-250 and E30, plus I have some odd stuff up for sale which does not come up that often.

The kit I am selling I had not used or didn't require or just would not get the use out of it. I am sticking with Olympus and hope they do produce a replacement for he E3.

I feel that some people have had some good deals on the E30/E620 and some have moved to MFT. Those selling their E3's are probably hoping for the E3 replacement soon.


Regards

Paul

I'm moving to Panasonic m4/3, hence selling E3 plus lenses.
