Re: Why are Jessops selling off their E-620's

I'm very happy with my E-3 and my E-500 as a fallback.
If a new top end Olympus is announced I don't expect to consider buying another body for a couple of years at least.
Currently my interest is in lenses and I think I'll take the plunge before the emergency budget as I reckon on 2.5% increase in VAT. (possibly more)
I wonder if that is what is persuading sellers to make offers.

Also if any new camera has a doubling or near doubling of pixels so the Raw files will likewise increase and then you have to consider is your computer up to it.

The bottom line is; can I take a a half decent photo? I only half think so.

Re: Why are Jessops selling off their E-620's

I'm looking forward to seeing the next Ex & Exx models & hopefully another new lens or two, but my E30 & E520 will have to do me for a few years yet. Maybe I might be able to get another lens before then (100 or 150 macro). I'm enjoying what I have & as Ian said "I am personally not going to use up any more energy through angst!" I just need to use up energy making money instead. (Working from home unfortunately allows easy access to the computer & all the time & energy can be just wasted).

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
