E-3 + 12-60mm

This is not a for sale post but a heads up that someone might be able to make use of.

I recently thought I'd struck gold on the Currys website by getting hold of one of the elusive E-3 + 12-60 ppackages for £899. Better still, I could use an online discount code that gave 3% off making it £868.99!!

However, when it arrived the E-3 had some very noticeable rubbing of the 'paintwork' on the underside of the body, a scratched LCD screen but worst of all the focussing screen was moving around so that you could not see a clear, focussed picture through the viewfinder.

I was offered a further 10% off, but I decided not to go with it and it has been returned. It is not showing on the website again. But if anyone is interested, let me know and I can give you the name of my contact at contact services who may be able to offer you a deal.
