Olympus E-520 or similar

I'm looking for a good deal on a DSLR. I'm thinking of getting the Olympus E-520 as it seems to be a reasonable price for 10 megapixels and all of the following features:

* Built-in image stabiliser
* Live View
* Dust reduction
* Face Detection
* Depth of field preview

Can anyone point me towards a good deal, with one or two lenses? There are some cheap prices out there, but some are apparently grey imports (which can apparently create warranty issues) and other are shipped from overseas (which can create import issues!)

Any others I should consider? And if so, why? I couldn't find anything else with the same features at a similar price.

i would say u can try ebay. there r some really reliable powersellers from hk. i got my e520 single lens kit from one of them and it cost me 350pound plus 40 for delivery. it took 4days to arrive, however later i was charged for the duty tax of 19 pounds. anyway all in all it was still much cheaper than buying from uk - it was almost 100 pounds cheaper in the early july, while e520 was barely lunched in the uk. and u dont need to worry about the warranty as it comes with one year international warranty. now the cheapest price would be sth like 339 for single lens kit (excluded the postage)

or, if you would prefer uk stock., the cheapest price i ever crossed is warehouseexpress.co.uk. they've got very decent price and charge less than 10 for next day deliver- though personally i dont like their carrier which is citylink.

and you would not regret of buying e520. i tried to collect money for e420 kits but ended up with e520. especially after my summer trip to germany i'd say it's a really handy d-slr. functional, convenient, it is really a piece of work.

good luck with your camera.

Thanks for the tips.

I ended up getting a single lens kit from ebuyer for £379.96 with free P&P - http://www.ebuyer.com/product/148664

The free delivery was supposed to be up to five working days, but they actually tried to deliver it the next day! Unfortunately, I was out. So I should be getting it tomorrow now...
