Re: 200 Trade in bonus

I had a look at the Wex site today and they have got nine used E-M1 Mk I bodies for sale. I wonder how many of these are the result of the 200 trade in bonus? They have just reduced the price of some of them by 20-80, presumably to get more consistency in the prices. I was surprised to see that they have rated mine as grade 8, as I thought it was in excellent condition. However, they spent over an hour inspecting it and noted down every tiny bit of missing paint and wear to the finish.

I think the trade in bonus is a good way to upgrade to the Mk II as the total allowance of the trade in price and 200 bonus was probably more than I could have realised by selling my camera privately. Also by selling to Wex I know that they are not going to come back to me if they encounter any problems in the future.
