Re: New E-620 and E-30 offers

I thought you meant that someone had already cut out the barcode from the box!
All is well then... And Jessops aren't so bad after all.

I've been looking at Park cameras website and it looks like they are charging for the grip, or am I getting muddled up?

Theres no mention of a free grip or a free battery on that site
Yes, I had noticed this and have the same question. I am struggling with getting a E620 body - an expensive luxury in the current climate - but getting a freebie might make the difference. Anybody spoken to Park??

Re: New E-620 and E-30 offers

you shouldn't have to wait that long - similar past deals have shipped within a few weeks.

I have decided to let the postal situation settle a little before putting mine in the post to Germany so I will be a little behind you in getting mine (but then again I have some 50Rs already!)

Been shopping around for the 620, and noticed that Jessops have dropped the price by 100 while at the same time removing the 'HLD-5 included' bit of the package ... Looks to me like they may be subsidising the price-reduction by keeping the grip for sale as a seperate item. Some of the other UK web-sellers seem to have the same idea (SRS still showing it included, though)

Or am I just too suspicious?

Re: New E-620 and E-30 offers

Okay, has anybody who managed to order an E-30 from Jessops at the 499 price actually received a camera yet? Over on the DPR Olympus SLR forums I don't think anybody has!

I've taken the decision and upgraded my E-510 (sold to a member on here) to an E-620. Would have loved an E-30, but I know I will be more than happy with the E-620. Before committing, I was checking prices constantly. A lot of retailers are not offering the HLD grip. I bought mine from SRS for 469 including HLD, and hopefully they should be dispatching it early next week. (On an aside, nice to be able to find a retailer with good prices, friendly and knowledgeable staff and the option to part exchange equipment.)

Warehouse Express are similarly priced and include the grip.

Re: New E-620 and E-30 offers

I was looking at those too, Bristol Cameras is another offering the grip.
I wasn't tempted though. The 620 isn't a big enough leap, from my L10 for example, so I'll save up for a while.
