    Default WTB Olympus E-5 body

    Greetings,

    As the title suggests, I am looking to purchase a clean, low shutter count E-5 to be shipped to Saskatoon, SK, Canada.

    Please PM me your shutter count and asking price.

    Would also consider a trade for my E-30 and some cash for your E-5...

    Cheers, Don

    Hi Don,
    Just to get an idea of prices for used E-5, look at a recent thread on dpreview titled "E-5 Wild Ride on eBay", or something like that. The thread is probably still on page one. The camera is out of stock at many retailers, including Olympus America.

    No shortage of new E-5 or the OMD-5 in Canada, they're in stock at Henry's, Vistek and McBain Camera. Don's Photo has the E-5 @ $1499.

    And B&H has a used E-5 right now but their price ($1250) is only slightly lower than what I paid for a new one a couple of months ago ($1299).

    Cheers, Don

    Hmm, this is tempting, I've been thinking about switching over solely to m4/3. I'll have to look at what my shutter count is.

    Hello Don;

    I've been thinking of selling my like new E-5, came on here this AM and there's your message. So I just checked the shutter count and it is 5673. If that is low enough for you, come on back and we can talk price and if u want the battery grip or grip strap or arca-swiss plate too. I am in California.

    George

    PS - Many, u got the full collection of lenses. I've got the 14-35 and it's the best lens I've ever used bar none.

    Your mail box is full.... If you don't mind I would rather negotiate via PM.

    Don, National Camera here in Minneapolis shows one on their webiste in E- condition for $899.

    I don't know if they'd ship to Canada or if you'd be interested due to price, but if you are I'd be happy to swing my that location and take a look, get a shutter count, etc.

    Thanks very much Keith !

    It appears UPS Ground is the only shipping option.

    Price and principle of using that method kills it for me

    Good price on the camera though, depending on the shutter count...

    Cheers, Don

    I'd work with you on getting it to you.

    Want me to go check the shutter count to see if it would be in play?

    You could buy it for local pickup. I could pick it up and ship USPS.

    Just a thought...let me know.

    Will do...

    CRAP, it's not on the site anymore! Do you have it in a cart? If you do, remove it from the cart so I can see it

    EDIT: Nevermind, I searched and found it. Burnsville location. I'll try to hit there tomorrow for you.

    A Big Thank You to Keith for suggesting National Camera Exchange AND for actually visiting the store and sending me cell phone pictures of the camera.

    Payment has been sent to them for a used E-5 body including two batteries, charger and grip. Shutter count 11,707 k.

    Purchase price of $899 US plus $50 for shipping by USPS. Paypal total $980 Cdn.

    NOTE > Their web site did not allow for any other shipping option except UPS but an email to the store manager confirmed she could and will ship USPS.

    Close me please.

    Cheers, Don
