Re: Olympus E5

cheers for that - am still in a quandary whether to upgrade to E5, or go to EM1 with adaptor Have the 14-54 (mk 1), 50-200 original, 9-18, 30 macro and 8mm fisheye (all 4/3), so not looking to upgrade glass. Had the em1 before and I think I prefer the older bodies - the one on ebay comes with (IMHO) the better zoom kit lens...decisions decisions...

Re: Olympus E5

thanks both
Managed to find a "B grade" ( i.e. good without box) from CEX for £290 on line last night, which seems a good price, will update on receipt as I have not purchased from them before online, although I have had a few lenses from the stores RE the grip I already have one , and to be honest I think I will sell it on- whilst it does give a handy portrait grip, it (as my wife said to me) "makes a cool camera look bottom heavy and lumpy like Kim Kardashians A** "....allegedly..

CEX offer refund, repair, or replacement within 30 days.
I think I'd be likely to try and go for the repair option, maybe suggesting Luton cameras.

That was my E-5, and I have responded with warm words about it to your other thread re the viewfinder problems on the CEX body. I part exchanged it, so have no financial interest in Ffordes sale, but if you need a 14-42 (e.g.) let me know!

On the other hand, Ffordes will have a 14-35 coming up...
