Original Pen EE-2 bargain
 
I'm more of a lurker than a poster but I had to tell you about this. As the weather was lousy, raining and windy, I went to a local Craft and Antique Fair. I saw this little baby on a small side stall. I picked it up to have a quick play to see what kind of condition it was in and to see if it worked. As you can see from the picture, it's in almost mint condition and everything does work. Shutter sounds good, iris blades nice and snappy, clean and fungus free lens. Even the low light red flag works. It has a genuine Olympus UV filter on, plus original lens cap, strap and case. I expected to pay 25-30 but all the guy wanted was 5!! I couldn't believe it, a FIVER!!

Anyway, I'm now the proud owner of an original Pen EE-2. I can't wait to try it out.

Anyone else out there own one and still use it?

The filter is worth more than £5

At £90 no but I will buy one at a good price.

I am enjoying the Oly 35 Sp at the moment though.
