A brand new E-1 SE kit anybody?

I notice that Luton Camera Repairs still have the E-1 SE kit with a 14-45 lens. Brand new for 375.

That seems a bit of a cheapo lens with the E-1, shame.

Personally I'd be a little wary of any mechanical item which had sat unused for so long.

They are an Olympus appointed Service Centre so I don't think I would worry too much.

With regard to the lens, it would be nice if it was a Zuiko 12-60 rather than the 14-45 but then....

Not sure how many they have left but I would think they are being a bit optimistic at 375.

If it comes with a warranty, no problem.

Re: A brand new E-1 SE kit anybody?

When I was down in Londinium last week, one of the smaller shops on Tottenham Court Road still had a new E-1 boxed, in the window. I asked how much it was. The answer was, "make me an offer over 400". I declined. (I first noticed it there 2 years ago!)

If you need to ask the price of that, you can't afford it!
