E-3 for under 600 at Currys

Thought that I would mention that in our local Currys store (Hemel Hempstead) there is an E-3 for under 600. No idea of condition (it could be a display model).

Re: E-3 for under 600 at Currys

I saw this a week ago, they had it up on sale but there was a chip on the casing on the top/front of the flash unit. It was also a display unit and had no body cap on it so I passed.
I'd gone to the store as they also had a couple of 12-60 SWD lenses for 529, one was ex-display and one was untouched. Neither were on display and the staff were unaware they had them (I'd got another store to check stock nationally earlier in the day). I bought the new/mint lens; don't know if the other is still there but you may need to tell them they have it in stock!

btw...they checked if any other stores had the E-3 in stock (hoping for a mint example at that price) but they could not find any on their stock system.

Never mind, there will be plenty of bargain used E-3s on this forum when the E-5 is available!

Re: E-3 for under 600 at Currys

For what you can buy a E3 for (600 and somthing ) compared with what a E5 could be 1500 - 2000 + i could not justify the differance.
Hell it would have to make the coffe for that.
