  • Spotted 2nd hand E-M1X at LCE Manchester

    £2,299 with a six month warranty. Iím guessing itís quite the Marmite Camera. Quite a bit bigger than the E-M1 right next to it... Quite a bit smaller than the APS-H 1D III on the other side.... Looks like a great platform for a 40-150 f2.8 or larger.

    WEX have got four of them, all Open Box examples. I am old and I can't get used to the idea of ordering expensive goods like that on trial and then sending them back if I don't like them. It's my loss, I guess.

      Likewise... I think itís called a sense of honour.

        No I can't do that either. I certainly wouldn't order something just to try it out. I'll only send stuff back if there is a problem with it.

          Yes, me too.
          Ultimately we all pay more because of people doing that: suppliers will build in the predicted cost of it happening to their base prices.

            Was hoping one of you would buy then sell to me at a discount. My sis is in High Wycombe and is coming over in June

            Went over to WEX camera to have a peek. The used price in UK is higher than a NEW unit in M'sia. The exchange difference can't be that much. I would only need to pay about GBP 2,526.00.

              This doesn't make much sense to me Henry. If they are cheaper new in Malaysia why not just buy one there?

                Just not willing to spend that much on a heavy camera. One of the reason I adopted the 4/3 and later the m4/3 system, it was the size and weight. It does not make sense to have a body that's close to 1kg. BUT you sell me a unit with say 50% lower, I might consider it as a second camera just for local use. (ie from car to point of use less than 100 feet)

                  I think you will need to wait a few years to get it 50% cheaper
                  But by then there will probably be a smaller and lighter version to go for that fits better what both you and I would want.

                    Try not to get too excited. There's one on the "for sale" forum here...

                      There's 20% VAT here, perhaps that makes up some of the new price difference?
