Looking for an Olympus E510 DSLR Camera 2 lens kit; Cheapest Price, or is yours for sale?

Hey chaps!

First original post here, so hopefuly it's in the right place!

As the title suggests, I'm in the market for an Olympus E510, with double kit lens; the lowest current price I have managed to find it for is £400 new (not including cameras found on Ebay).

Does anyone know if this is available for anything under £400 on a UK-based site at the moment?

Or is anyone looking to sell theres? (must be good condition)

Length of warranty is also an important factor; preferably over 1 year long.

Thanks muchly for any help you may be able to provide! =)

I am thinking of getting an E510 with 2 lenses off ebay at about £340 delivered, believe Olympus give a 12 month international warranty so even if US cameras gtee should be ok in UK? Think I read somewhere the ebuyer cameras were intended for US sale

emilyandlily ebay seller has 98% FB which is ok ish, and reading through FB seems ok, any thoughts?

Thanks for everyones input :thumbsup:


The ebay prices seem the best around then, considering that if anything goes wrong we'd presumably have exactly the same 12month warranty as we would get from regular highstreet shops, should anything go wrong with the camera.

My concern is that with most high spec electrical stuff you usually start to notice things malfunctioning a while after 12 months (quite often at the year and a half mark); in these instances the 12 month warantees couldn't be used. As such I think it's probably better to look around and find the longest length of warranty even if it sacrifices a little bit of the savings you'd otherwise make; the one from purely gadgets that you quoted looks really ideal, and a great price too, but i've a feeling that if they ever restock it then it'll probably be at a higher price again (looks like they've been selling it under 'sale' or 'clearance' maybe..)

I found an e510 double lens kit on ebay a while back that had (possibly) a 5year warranty for a reasonable price (£330ish)-do you think shipping charges and import taxes would be so huge as to negate any possible savings from sellers far abroad?

Would it make sense to just get the camera insured after the first year, rather than worry about extended warranties since hopefuly the same things should be covered, or would any of you guys say that it'd be wiser to ensure at the same time that warranty is valid in case something happens that isn't covered by the warranty?

Pretty clueless about camera insurance and warranties etc; any extra tips going spare for a novice such as myself would be muchly appreciated!

brilliant SLR, and zuiko lens are outstanding, million miles away from normal kit lens tat...........and a camera is only as good as its lens at the end of the day.............

I bought one from eBay in the end, a little less than a week ago; result? A very happy photographer! Haven't yet had time to read through the manuel and experiment with my own settings, but it works on auto straight out of the box (after a few hours of charging battery first!), and the results are awesome! The 40-150 zoom lens is what tempted me towards this model (and the fact that you can get 2 lenses with it for hardly anything more, monetarily), and it works fantastically! I took it out with me near some cliffs over the sea, and was using it instead of binoculars; super easy to use, you just zoom in manually to whatever object/distance you want, semi-depress the button and the camera automatically focuses in!

A big thumbs up and cheesy grin from me :thumbsup: :-D

Thanks for all your help!
