E620 - Silver ?

I've just stumbled upon a website offering an E620 package at a VERY attractive price.

However, it's advertised as Silver - as far as I know, this camera (like all other regular Olympus E series) is only marketed in black.

Can anybody confirm this ?

I suspect whoever listed the product on the website has confused the E620 with one of the Pen models.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

I believe you're right as there's never been a Silver 620 or any 4/5 either for that matter. If the price advertised seems really good, it may indeed refer to a E-PL1.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

Going back several years they did produce some E500's in silver/grey.Looked really plastic and nasty.
Not aware of any models since.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

It's quoted at 360.99 - and appears to be the twin lens package.

That can't be right

I'm awaiting a reply from the website - I'll advise when they respond.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

That's a great price, if it for a twin lens package.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

Try Googling froomoo for customer reviews. It looks like a HK company similar to Simply Electronics with a bad reputation for taking your money, failing to deliver and taking ages to refund.

If it looks too good to be true it probably is I'm afraid.

Regards

They have a UK landline number and address.

It does look too good to be true though.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

Yup, the customer experience doesn't seem to good.... I think I'd avoid no matter what the price.

Yes, use a credit card to be covered if you decide to buy. Great price.

Slightly reassured that they take credit cards.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

If Olympus have decided to only go the micro 4/3 route, they may well be flogging whatever stocks of E4/5/6 to clear some shelf space, which explains why some dealers like the one mentioned here are able to sell at a low price when they buy pallets of the stuff.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

If that's the case why not get a couple of kits from a Shop Clearance at somewhere like Argos and them sell on here for a quick profit.
