That looks like a good price. I have a E-300 and love it. Keep in mind that lenses are few and far between at a resonable price. The oly 4/3 system is hard to get after-market long tele lenses for. Other than that, it is a great camera.

beware, folks. costco offers the 17.5-45 lens, which is not the lens that usually comes with the e500 - a 14-45. and any other seller, like b&h, is now carrying the kit for that same price, but with the 14-45.

IMHO, the best deals right now are the E-1 bodies, E-300 kits and E-500 kits sold by Cameta on their ebay store.

E-1 bodies are selling for $450-500 new, and E-300 1 lens kits are going for around $340-370, and 2 lens kits for $450-475. E-500 kits seem to be going for around $150 more than the E-300 kits, and for that difference, I would definitely go with the E-300 (and I did, twice - LOL!). Cameta is a very high integrity seller, with excellent service and support and I can recommend them without hesitation. The kits include the 14-45, not the 17-45.

Also, in California, Fry's is selling the 2 lens E-300 kits for $499, but IMHO, the Cameta auctions are a better deal.
