Mint E-1 & Grip for sale :(

Hate to do it, but personal reasons (Skint, and need the money )force the sale of this fantastic bit of kit.

Both the E-1 and Grip are boxed, and complete with all original leads, CD Roms, Instruction Books etc.

The E-1 has taken 2312 shots so is still, as should be expected, mint condition, as is the grip.

270 Inc Postage, or 260 collected (SK15, Manchester)

Payment by Bank Transfer / Bank Deposit only (Closed my paypal account as theay are robbing so and so's )

PM Me if interested.


Chris

Yeah, Yeah, I Know

I've been having a tough time at work and we lost a load of contracts, meaning that peoples jobs were in jepardy, including mine, and i was assessing ways of (a) getting rid of stuff that is not used and surplus to requirements (B) getting a bit of money to one side due to an impending holiday that was booked last year and the potential of being out of a job.

Sorry to hear that Chris.

I think you must be destined to keep that E-1 you know - besides, how can you take piccies on your hols to show us lot if you don't have a camera

There's an old saying that goes something like 'decide in haste, repent at leisure'. If I were you, I'd hang on to the E-1 for as long as you possibly can. It's a cracking camera - I'm very pleased with mine

Still got one of my E-3's, an E-420 (with Pancake), plus a bag full of lenses - ZD 35-100mm / ZD50mm / ZD12-60mm SWD / Sigma 150mm Macro / 50-200mm SD (Currently on holiday in South Wales )

No i've decided i'm 'definately' keeping it the box has been filed in the far reaches of the loft, and believe me you don't want to go up there for any reason if you don't have to

Not with my mortgage it wont!

In the scheme of things that just below selling a Kidney, and possible other vital organs - Not gonna happen.

Besides its the lens that gets me the shots inside the Gym.

How you liking the 14-54?

It's absolute class, mate - a huge step up in quality and feel from the kit lenses, and even better on the E-1... the E-510 is definitely designed for the kit lenses, or vice versa. The E-1 is definitely designed for something more substantial...

Image someone as sensible as you taking on a killer mortgage... Ouch! You could always keep the 35-100mm and sell the house you know... the lesser of two evils?

Keep your chin up...
