Anybody want a cardboard box?

Somebody's selling an empty cardboard box for 30 on EBay. For only 9.99 you can get a one year warranty. There's some bargains to be had if you keep your eyes open.

Re: Anybody want a cardboard box?

You can also buy an E-M5 box from the same seller - this one has a manual and a CD for an extra 10

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Olympus-OM...gAAOSwn7JYFlu1

The seller is listing a number of other odd things at very high prices?

Re: Anybody want a cardboard box?

I think the 'i' in his username is before the wrong 's'.

He has some even more expensive items for sale.

EDIT: oops crossed with AMc's post

I see it has a small tear in the outer sleeve. Just think how much a 'minter' would be worth!

Re: Anybody want a cardboard box?

I wonder what he is on? Must be drinking too much Apple juice!

I see he is also selling a Nokia cable for just 9,876!

Nokia CA-75U Cable for only 9876.00!

Proves you can sell anything to gullible people with more money then sense.

I wonder if his second name is Jobs?

Re: Anybody want a cardboard box?

Considering they are also on sale for a few quid then it's going to be a hard sell. Mind you, you only need to sell one I guess.

Re: Anybody want a cardboard box?

Hope Olympus don't find this out when I sent my ME1 back during the early close down problem I was told not to send it back in the original box. It was returned to me in a ME1 box if they still do this we may be charged.

On the other hand how many repairs and returns in pristine boxes to be sold on EBay to pay for an OMD ME1 MkII?

Re: Anybody want a cardboard box?

I've a few leftovers from when my OMD-EM5 Mki was stolen. So a Pany 25 f/1.4 box and lens hood, the kit box for the EM5, probably the mini-flash, perhaps a box for the Oly 12 f/2, the official leather half case and top case which annoyingly doesn't fit the Em5ii which i got as a replacement, also I've got a microphone which might not attach to em5ii.

One day I'll post them up to see if anyone is interested.

Re: Anybody want a cardboard box?

I love the way the listing includes reviews of the EM1 camera

I don't actually remember anyone commenting on the quality of the box it was delivered in in any of the reviews I read

regards
Andy

I've added it to my 'watch list', just to give the seller hope!

Yeahbut - to be fair the postage is free!

(I've also added this one to my 'watch list', to make him think that I'm 'nibbling'!)

Re: Anybody want a cardboard box?

I see in another thread that at a recent event the EM-1 Mk II camera was locked in a glass cabinet. I wonder if this was to avoid the possibility of the highly expensive box being stolen while it was on display?
