Re: Olympus E30 with grip!

Well I only really need the body and grip. So I should imagine about 400 - 500?

Re: Olympus E30 with grip!

There is this to look at. shutter count is maybe 30 more now. Can't stand to see things un-used so I took it out.

Re: Olympus E30 with grip!

Yes I don't think shipping is going to be an arm and a leg.....I hope. Make sure you read the ad, it does have, and always had since I bought it that memory fault. I have always kept the grip on, it just handles better, and swapped out the battery. Never had a memory problem that way. If you use 2 just do one at a time. Using 2 batteries does seem to speed up focusing. Noticed a difference with the 50-200mm.

Re: Olympus E30 with grip!

So lemme clear this up? It has a memory fault when there are two batteries in the grip?

Re: Olympus E30 with grip!

Sorry my bad. When you remove the battery from the camera, no battery in, it dumps the time and date immediately. That's why, other than handling, I kept the grip on. when one battery is drained put the fresh one in before you remove the drained one. That is the only niggle, it functions perfectly.

Re: Olympus E30 with grip!

No none at all, it doesn't even effect the myset/custom settings you store in memory. It's been a fabulous camera, but I have an E-1, and PL5, this one just sits. I have put more on the PL5 in 8 months than 3 years on the E-30.

Re: Olympus E30 with grip!

Just let me know when you are ready. Nobody is beating my door down for it, and I don't expect any one to either.
