Re: Good price on E-30 at Jessops

that is so depressing as I paid 1,000 for that same kit, early in the year.

I did however have a load of free stuff from olympus, which kinda makes up for it

Re: Good price on E-30 at Jessops

The price on the E-30 is dropping, I paid $1650 CAD for a E-30 14-54MkII kit and at todays exchange that is 926 GBP.

Re: Good price on E-30 at Jessops

I saw that deal just now on the Jessops website. Can't be right. Still if its advertised as such they have to honour the deal, right?

Alistair,

In England they don't have to "honour the deal" unless it is clearly an offer. Otherwise it is an invitation to trade by Jessops. In contractual terms you make the offer to buy when you present the item at the till.

I agree it is a reasonable price, though, and worth checking if you are in the market for an E-30.


Nick

Re: Good price on E-30 at Jessops

Sadly I am not in the market for an E-30.

And I accept your point of consumer law.

Still, if you buy direct from their website they are going to accept payment and ship the camera and lens long before realizing the mistake, no?

Re: Good price on E-30 at Jessops

Now 599 with kitlens, 499 without. With Olympus currently having an offer for a free grip or flash this must be a great buy? I hope so because I have just ordered one!

Re: Good price on E-30 at Jessops

At this rate they will be offering you money to take one! I`ve never known a camera drop in value as fast as an e-30!

Dropping in price - maybe, but dropping in value - definitely not!. To me they are increasing in value. its worth it to pick one up as a spare at this rate :lol:

Well, it's dropped into my range now so I've ordered one... which means I'll be offering a 520 and E1 for sale very soon.

Re: Good price on E-30 at Jessops

I dont understand how the e-30 is now cheaper than the 620 it dosent make any sense, I understand how tech prices drop, but 500 in 6 months

Re: Good price on E-30 at Jessops

Looking forward to delivery. Jessops are on the ball just lately with some of their internet prices. Better than the cheapest of internet sites!

Moving from Nikon to four thirds is a big move. I hope i'm doing the right thing!
