wex photographic trade in bonus 520

Contemplating swapping my mk1 em1 and clocked Wex doing a combined trade in of 520 if I trade in my mk1 for the mk2 thus bringing the mk2 down to
1349. Is this about the best deal out there excluding HDEW who have been doing it at 1399 without trade in?


EM-1 MK1 - No website containing any of my photos until I'm good enough!

Re: wex photographic trade in bonus 520

I think you will find that is not a guaranteed trade-in price but an example based on what they consider to be a camera in Grade 9 condition. They will give a definite value when they have inspected your camera properly.

I thought my camera was in very good condition but they spent over an hour inspecting it and then assessed it as Grade 8. As I was also trading in an unused HLD-7 grip the total trade in allowance with the 200 bonus was acceptable to me.

I didn't want to keep the E-M1 MkI, as I know that I wouldn't use it when I had the new camera and it would sit in a drawer and deteriorate and lose value. WEX have got a lot of used Mk Is and they seem to be priced at around the 400 mark, so I don't think I would have got a lot more selling it privately, when the 200 is taken into account.
