E520 (or E510) - still available ?

If any member spots a "High Street" outlet, or an internet deal for a new E520 or E510, could they please flag it up here ?

I know both are discontinued, however I did come across one online - sold before I could contact the store unfortunately.

Re: E520 (or E510) - still available ?

I've found this one 2nd hand

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Olympus-E-520-...item2eb5d172d3

Seems quite a good deal for what looks like a very lightly used one.

Apart from that, it appears that new ones are as rare as the proverbial hen's teeth!

I noticed on Kerso's latest list he was listing both E510 and E520 kits/body's which I would assume are new.

Do you have a link to Kerso's list? I've looked on his evilBay site and I can't find any...

Thanks Janet, I'll keep watch on Ebay.

I've found a (very) few online deals - however it's not clear if kit is in stock, so I've emailed for confirmation.

A couple of offers appear dodgy.

Janet, I have a copy of the list from a couple of weeks back (May 25th I think) which lists both but you'd be better to email him directly and get the latest prices, if you need his email address please PM me and I'll send you it,

Chris

I've located a good condition second hand E520 with 14-42 lens.

My thanks to those who helped point me in the right direction.

BTW - Kerso has 2 x E510 (body only) @ 175 if anybody is interested.

Work ?

What's that, I'm happily retired

I hope "work" is not an euphemism for foot slogging around Afghanistan to keep the locals in order

Have to nip out, speak later.

Thanks very much for the tip, I have been looking for a minty mint or new E-510 for some while (always regretted selling mine a few years back). They're a great little D-SLR (apart from the tendency to clip highlights).
That price on a brand new one is too good to miss, Ian has just informed he is shipping mine tomorrow AM
