The price of PEN E-P1 is really dropping. I can not imagine it getting any lower. But we all know the story of the Reserve & Collect products from Jessops--you need to be extremely lucky to find one.

Please note: due to limited remaining stocks, product may be ex-display and includes a 2 year Olympus warranty.

Quidco&TCB are available.

wow v tempting price

note, the camera has no flash so you have to buy one

Actually, if you are a scenery shooter, flash is hardly used. Besides, the built-in image stabilizing can somehow relieve the problem. However, if flash is a must for you, I would suggest not to buy E-P1, since the flash FL-14 is being sold at a ridiculous price. Of course, you can always go for a third-party flash or FL-20.

An alternative choice is Panasonic G1 which is available at a really low price now. G1 has built-in EVF and flash but lack of IS and its size is noticeably bigger.

First of all, you need to find a store with stock. I haven't found one within 200 miles. It's like a Currys/PCWorld offer, which dont exist (it's good advertising, though).

You can get this camera from Currys for £319 delivered (stock available as of 27/07/10 @ 7.30 AM)

As to the flash issue, this shouldn't be a problem since you can use any flash you like, auto, manual, even vintage flash guns. Dont buy the over-priced Pen flash gun, which is too weak anyway.

good price but you can get the samsung nx10 with 18-55 for £399 and it has a viewfinder ; worth the extar cost imho.....

IMHO, the problems with Samsung NX10 is the absence of built-in IS and the lack of lenses for NX mount. Otherwise, it is a monster in its league.

Total agree with pet2000. I use my canon 430 flash in manual mode the result is absolutely brilliant. My free 4/3 to micro 4/3 adaptor arrived last week, I use it with olympus 35mm f3.5 macro lens which I picked up from jessops the other day for only £99. The result is a close match to my canon 100mm macro lens now sell for about £430. The whole point of this camera is portability, if you're after top notch image quality, you should consider DSLR rather than this little beauty.

I totally agree, that's why I'm switching from Canon to Olympus. Olympus 35mm f3.5 macro for £99? That's burning hot!

You don't need to dump your canon gears micro 4/3 and canon eos system can live happily together. All you need is a micro 4/3 to EOS adaptor. That's another good point about the E-P1, you can get various adaptors for use with other lenses, so many legacy lenses are so cheap and wonderful.

I'm selling almost all my EF/EF-S mount lens, but I will keep the body to use my legacy Zeiss lenses. It's a 350D body, I would get much money by selling it anyway. When using legacy lenses with micro 4/3 body, the conversion factor of 2 is really a pain. I think I will eventually get a Leica M9 ;)
