Re: E620 - Silver ?

I've spotted a (new) E520 with 14-42 at 360 which would do me.

It's a proper camera shop in a city centre location.

Too many doubts about froomoo - probably kit shipped from abroad, which is fine until HMRC takes an interest.

That wouldn't be Merchant City Cameras by chance would it? They have a fair amount of 2nd hand Olympus kit as well. I was in there on Monday lunchtime drooling over the 50-200 non SWD they have there but at 500 it's too rich for me. They have a nice selection of OM cameras as well.

Re: E620 - Silver ?

I enquired of them earlier this week regarding the E-620 package:-

Quote:
The description of this product isn't clear, especially where it lists what is in the box, lenses are not mentioned. Does it come with the two lenses or not?.

Also, if it is shipped from HK, how can you pay the customs duty before it is delivered to me in France?
And I received this reply.

Dear Chris,

Thank you for your email.

The item does come with two lenses yes. We pre-pay all customers import duties. Please contact us if you require any further information.

Kind Regards

Froomoo.com
They also accept Paypal, so you are protected if they don't supply. Paying duty might be a bit of a scam, because there is 0% duty on digital cameras here. 19.7% VAT though. I will ask if they pay the VAT too

Jamie - apolgies for the delay in responding, I "lost" this thread and couldn't remember where it was located.

Yes, it was Merchant City Cameras. I e-mailed them about the new e520 deal without a reply, and by the time I called it had been sold - the previous day
