I'm looking for one in Ontario. Mint ones are fetching more than they were when new.

As of a month or so ago you could still find new E-3 bodies. I could get two and a half new E-3s for the cost of a mintish E-5.

I actually have 2 that I want to sell. In really good condition. Let me know if you're still interested. I'm in Australia though, so don't know how it works out but lets talk...

Does a few marks impact on the quality of the images......they do on the price which is the way I would go......

Indeed; and from a purely functional perspective, <15k clicks is as close to mint as you might hope to get on an E5

Agreed, and SRS are a very reputable company plus they are selling it with a full ONE YEAR WARRANTY .... anyone actually wanting an E5 would be pretty silly not to go for this one.

S/H E5 do not appear all that often nowadays, I guess those who own them realise what a good camera they are and are reluctant to let them go.

I'm not in the market for one but I can say in all honesty if I was the one at SRS wouldn't be there now

Kind regards, Simon

Re: mint e5

Hi Adam, if you are interested I have an E5 in very good to mint condition that I have decided to sell.

Total shutter actuations are 12,777. The body is unmarked as far as I can see.

It will also come with the HLD-4 grip and batteries, etc.

I bought the E5 body new from Ffordes in May 2011, (I already had an E1 and lenses). I used it regularly until late 2013 when I bought an EM5 for its lighter weight. My son then used it for a while, but he has since bought his own EM5 in the slightly less attractive silver colour to match his Apple Mac, (mainly so he can borrow my lenses)!

Please let me know if this is of interest.

Nigel.
