Olympus E-30 for 499

Hi everybody,

Jessops is currently showing the E-30 (body only) for 499! Add the free flash and it's a great deal. Everybody thinking about upgrading should probably act now.

Get them while you can

Jessops is shifting its stock.

My understanding from Olympus us that there aren't many left...

Ian,

Just been in touch with Jessops and they confirm the 499 price. No stock but on special order.
NB: Could not find it on the website though that is why I phoned.

I was told that Jessops was simply clearing their own stock. Did you talk to your local branch or Jessops centrally?

Re: Olympus E-30 for 499

I ordered one yesterday, as did someone else I think in another post. It stated special order.
Hopefully it should turn up in a week or so rather than 28 as they suggest. We shall see!

Re: Olympus E-30 for 499

Is there a link on the Jessops site for the offer?

The reason I ask is that there is now no sign of the offer on the Jessops site that I can see...

Ian.

There is nothing on the website but I called the 0800 number on the site and spoke to their Sales Department. I asked the question twice to make suree there was no misunderstanding on the price. I then asked if they had it in stock and was told no, they are on special order.

Re: Olympus E-30 for 499

Maybe they just pull in the stock from the shops and ship it out. Now they've taken enough orders to get rid of their stock - and some - it's off the website.

Re: Olympus E-30 for 499

They were all snapped up super quick. I managed to get in a E-30 with kit lens for 599 and then to add to the excitement found a 12-60 lens at Currys Digital today for 550. This must be a bargain!
