    Default SOLD: Black E-M1, HLD-7, Boxed, Great Condition

    A used but lovingly cared for E-M1 boxed with all the included accessories - flash, Olympus battery, charger, USB cord, body cap, unused strap.

    I take great care of my gear - the cosmetics are nearly flawless. Even the hot shoe, original body cap, and PC cord outlet covers are still there. There is a bit of brassing on the hot shoe, but none on the prism. There is a fine scratch on the non-lit part of the LCD that you would not notice if I didn't point it out, but I believe in full disclosure.

    I also will throw in the perfectly engineered Really Right Stuff L-plate, your best friend when shooting on a tripod, allowing you to go from vertical to horizontal in seconds. The RRS L-plates fit the body like a glove so there is no twist or shimmy, just a rock solid connection with the tripod. The battery remains fully accessible.

    If you obsess about shutter actuations, the 37000 this camera has recorded might put you off, but keep in mind three things:

    1. Unlike the E-M1 Mark 2, this camera counts mechanical AND electronic shots. (The Mark 2 only records mechanical shutter firings, as they are the only ones that count towards wear.) I am a heavy user of the electronic shutter, for focus stacking and shooting wildlife, so I would estimate that the true mechanical count is more like 25000.
    2. Olympus rates this shutter at 150,000 shots, so if I even if I did rack up 37000 in three years, there would be plenty of life left.
    3. I have the camera cleaned and adjusted at least once a year, many times more often.

    The only reason this solid, reliable camera is going up for sale is that I got a good deal on a E-M1 Mark 2.

    Just read the forums; everyone is raving about these E-M1s and how they are such a bargain at the moment, with the release of the new Mark II. Grab this prime copy for $475 including the RRS plate!

    I am also selling the battery grip, the HLD-7.
    For ease of hand holding and vertical shooting, this excellent grip (with a battery included) doubles the battery life and makes the camera very quick and sure for portraits and street photography. Just $100.

    I will ship free to CONUS, and to Canada if you pay the difference in shipping. PayPal only.
