E620 body-only for 399 @ Jessops

Just doing a price compare this am to see how the 'reductions' were coming along, and stumbled on this

http://www.jessops.com/online.store/...6130/show.html

Which is as cheap as I've seen a body so far.

Now if only I didn't have to go out and replace me TV this am... :-(

Re: E620 body-only for 399 @ Jessops

Thats a good price.

Not sure if I will ever understand Jessops pricing though....

Olympus E3 + 12-60mm Lens Kit 1409.00
http://www.jessops.com/online.store/...2106/show.html

Olympus E3 + 12-60mm Lens + HLD-4 Grip 1849.00
http://www.jessops.com/online.store/...2109/show.html

How much for a HLD-4 grip!? and a E30 kit for more than the E3.

Olympus E-30 + EZ 12-60mm lens kit 1499.00
http://www.jessops.com/online.store/...5807/show.html

Goodness knows what's going on with Jessops... This is the same company that was just about giving E-30s away a few months ago

Re: E620 body-only for 399 @ Jessops

I echo the previous posts Jessops don't really seem to know what they are doing with Olympus equipment. I decided to take the plunge and reserved an E-620 body at my local Jessops. When I got there they said there was a stock error and they only actually had body and lens combinations - they offered me the E-620 with 14-42mm lens for 449 including grip. There is another Jessops about 1km from this one so I decided to go there as I'd seen on the reserve page that they also had body only at 399. They didn't but again offered me the body and lens for 449 but without the grip - they said it was old stock from before Olympus started offering the grip as standard. Their Olympus cabinet looked like a fire sale with only a 520 two lens kit, a 620 two lens kit and an 18-180mm lens in it. All other shelves were bare. However the price tags were still there and they had been selling an 11-22mm lens for 349!! So if you are in the vicinity of your local Jessops it may well be you could grab a bargain.

Re: E620 body-only for 399 @ Jessops

Something similar in Basingstoke - though there it was just mainly bodies with twin-lens kits on sale, and none of those at 'sale' prices.... When I asked for help they located the last E620 tucked at the back of the cabinet, with indeed quite a few price-tags with nothing behind 'em - looks like they are clearing it all out.

I took the E620 btw :-)))

Re: E620 body-only for 399 @ Jessops

I was given a gift voucher for Christmas and I must try and get in to Jessops soon because I suspect that either A) they will be out of business soon or B) Oly and Jessops are struggling to reach commercial terms which is probably not good for either in the long term

Regards
Andy

Cinders,
Can I ask what price they quoted you and was it with or without the grip?

Re: E620 body-only for 399 @ Jessops

I think it the sale sign in the window was about 460 with the single lens, but they qoted in the shop about 610 for body only... Crazy!
However, just checked them online and they say 510 for single lens kit.

Would go for a sub 400 price if I could find one nearby!

Re: E620 body-only for 399 @ Jessops

When I bought my E30 from Jessops they were asking 799 for the body only and 699 for the body and a 14-42. I bought the body and lens immediately in case it was a mistake. Less than a week later it was 499 for the body and 599 for the kit! I got the free FL-36R though so it wasn't all bad news - but their pricing does seem very strange indeed.

That's interesting - I will ask for clarification from Olympus UK about the grip.

Maccabeej, send me your address via PM so that Oly UK can send you a HLD-5.

Now THAT'S service!

Never got a grip with my E-620, but then it was bought before the offer was announced....
