Thanks but it's OK I've dealt with Ian Kerr (Kerso) a number of times in the past (always excellent service).
To be honest I was surprised but very pleased to hear he had some old stock. Thanks again for the tip

Re: E520 (or E510) - still available ?

No problem, it was the decent thing to do.

I mentioned an E520 & 14-42 late last week that was showing on a website at a decent price, without naming the location.

When I called the next morning it was gone - now I enquire for first refusal before going public

Sorry to hear you lost out on the E-520 & 14-42

So are you going for the other of Kerso's 510s or going to look out for a another 520?

Edit: Or perhaps you shouldn't say

Re: E520 (or E510) - still available ?

My own fault entirely (procrastination) on the new E520. It was in Glasgow, so I could easily have gone over and picked it up in person.

Life is an ongoing learning process

For years I've encouraged my wife not to be indecisive and to buy something she's seen and liked but which is not liable to be available too long - now I'm hoisted by my own petard

I've since located a very good pre-owned one at a fair price, so I'm happy.

Otherwise I would have had no hesitation ref. Kerso's offer on the E510.

Found one, very good condition.

The box says the package comes with a training DVD, however this was not included, obviously an oversight.

Is it something that is easy enough to pickup ?

Welcome to the forum Pickie32
I think you would be better off posting this in the For sale and wanted small ads section.
