Wanted - body/lens/kit?

Hello from a new member, looking for a E510 in excellent condition with or without standard kit lenses. May push to a E520 or E600

Close-ish to South Yorkshire would be good

Thanks, but if they were i'd yank their arm off.

They are out of stock (and have been for weeks) although they still keep reducing the price of kit they haven't got!! It was 289 last week and they still didn't have any.........

Other group companies (PC world and Dixons) all showing the same too. It's been annoying me for weeks now.


Thanks anyway
Chris

Re: Wanted - body/lens/kit?

I am thinking of selling my e-510, but that's only if I can get an e-600 for a Curry's price. I was thinking of e-bay. One went last night (re-furb from US I think) for about 280, but I was watching the election and couldn't make a decision.....

I am not far from South Yorkshire, for the moment.

I suppose I suggest you look at e-bay as buying a 510 seems silly if you the e-600 prices are possible.

Re: Wanted - body/lens/kit?

I don't think the curry's price is going to happen - it's just to drag people in on google! I'd be at the store tomorrow morning at that price

The last E600 with lens i saw on ebay - about 2 weeks ago went for 330

Re: Wanted - body/lens/kit?

Our local Curry's still had a display E-600 with 14-42mm on Wednesday - would you be intersted in that if it's still there? Didn't notice the price tag on it though, as I was in looking at something else non-camera related....

I've not been in the one local to me though! I'll nip in tomorrow to see if they've still got one first.

Be careful with their display items. They are often mauled over by potential purchasers and you may well find that the original box and its contents are no longer to be found!

Too late - gone to someone yesterday, apparently! I always have luck like that... or should it be no luck like that.

... but if you are getting what was a 500 camera for 200, and it came with a years warranty but no box, it's a no brainer...

Yes, they are programmed to detect Olympus fanciers.
