Default E-1 Bargain??

Hi guys and gals. This guy has 100+ of this model to sell and he is selling them for just under 60 bucks each. Its tempting just to have one for a back up at that price.

I saw that also, and had the same thought. After Christmas is over I may get that as a cheap back-up body. They also have a 14-54 lens for $110 which would be a cheap backup to the 12-60 lens.

Yes, the lens is a real good buy at 110.00 considering it was 600 bucks new at the time. I have that lens and its my walk around lens and I'm really impressed with the results. Doesn't look like he has too many left so I might be out of luck after Christmas. The E1 had that very nice Kodak sensor that produced excellent color.

OMG, at that price I think I am going to grab an E1 with the 14-54mm.
