e-620?

Hi, I have the chance of buying an e-620 with 14-42mm lens mint condition for 299. I like the look of it. Any advice from owners of this camera? what is your experience of it and is a good price? thanks in advance.

If it really is in mint condition and at that price, grab it!

If new to E system cameras, though, make sure the instruction book is included, or get hold of one from somewhere.

Have fun!

If it really is as you say, I'd tear their arm off!

Just get it!! If there's no instruction book with it you'll be able to download it.

Re: e-620?

that's a ok price for used or a total bargain for new? You post doesn't say?

On the dreaded ebay 600's usually go for 250 and 620's 300+

Although at the minute there is a seller on ebay with new 620's with that lens for 339 buy it now plus a tenner post

Re: e-620?

Oh sorry, your right I didn't say it was used, I guessed that the 'mint condition' was explaining that it wasn't new. still it does say mint, so I think it is probably still a good price.

Great price, great camera, good lens.
