That's not what I was offered by Jessops in Manchester at the Olympus preview day on 8th November.

They looked up PX prices on some 3rd party web site and announced:
350 for the E-M1 body, 323 for the 12-40 lens - notwithstanding both being in pristine condition and meeting all their own website criteria (original packaging etc.).
Then, to add insult to injury, a 2nd member of staff appeared and tried to chisel the offer price down by claiming the LCD was scratched (utter B*S* - since it had a screen protector fitted which has been on since new).

All this reinforced my long-held opinions about Jessops - so I'll stick with my usual camera supplier!

I thought it sounded high - it's more than I paid for mine 18 months ago

Jessops as far as I am aware do not sell used camera gear so I assume their not earning much but are passing this price on. I was offered 350 from well known site. In excellent condition. The problem is that on a trade in the store is earning quite a margin.
Kind regards Mike

Jessops have been running a p/x scheme for a while now...they sell their used items via Camera Jungle.
