Buying a C-2100UZ, but....
Does anyone know where I can get a cheap Olympus C-2100UZ in europe?

I live in the UK, and I loathe paying 900 for a discontinued camera that they sell in America for the equivelent of 290.

Has anyone bought a Camera from America and got it sent into the UK? Did they tax you and how much?

Anyways, I hope someone can help.

Many thanks,


P.s Sorry, I've cross posted... *8)

am in same situ - live in UK and just had 2100 stolen
... had my 2100 stolen two weeks ago.

Need to get insurance quote, but no one
carries the camera anymore...

Have you found a place in the UK that will
give you a quote for 900! If so, please
email me the details so that I can forward
these to my insurance company!

All I'm getting so far is Dixon's saying they
can write me up a 400 quote because that's
how much the last demo camera sold for...
obviously no good for me as I can't find
anything similar to replace my 2100 with for
this kind of silly money.

Try searching e-bay and the like.
The current auctions often will ship overseas, just ask the person with item for sale.

As for what they are worth, try the closed auctions (what someone actually paid).:cool:

Sorry about that
I bought one of the last remaining Oly 2100's in Seattle, Washington retail for $499.97 US (June 2, 2002).. not including tax.

The store was a chain big guy store here... The price in steadly climbing on ebay and other used markets...

They are no longer available at any CompUSA store now...

I bought one in the UK just recently. I couldn't believe it :) A c2100 UZ with 12 months guarantee from Jessops. For 240 quid..

Just go into any jessops store and they should b able to contact all the others stores looking for one for you :) But you need to find a friendly one.

I asked Jessops in Blackburn and all I got was a surly out of stock and go away look. On a recent visit to Lancaster I went in Jessops and they where falling over themselves to help me and said they would contact all the stores and do there best to get me one and call me... two days later a call saying they found one.

I bought what maybe was the last c2100 in the LA - San Bernardino area CompUSA system for the employee price and unfortunately I'm 99% sure that there are zero c2100's left in the CompUSA inventory.

I'm now really hoping that nothing goes wrong with this camera.
