Default $799 USD a good price for a Olympus E-10?

A local electronics store is currently selling the Olympus E-10 for $799.00 USD. Good price for this digital SLR camera? This package is not a refurbish model, but the USA retail package with full OlympusUSA warranty.

You already have a 4MP camera apparently, so you will just be buying the SLR controls and ergonomics, convenience, etc. However, the E10 has a bit larger CCD and the lens should be superior to the C4000. If that is what you are after, then get it. The price may go lower, but you will be using it in the meantime. A lot of pros thought the E10 was a good buy at 2K USD.

$799? Oh dear, how prices have dropped since I bought my E-10 over two years ago at $1840... for that price I'd get the E-10 over the other cameras, had I not had the E-10 already.

A new E10 for $799 sounds like a great deal.

Fry's, a local discount electronics store in this area (Southern California) is selling the E10 for a little under $800....don't remember the exact price. That seems to be the going price right now. Remember that the E10 is one generation behind the E20, and Oly will probably have a new SLR out soon, so it will be two generations back. Still, it's a helluva good camera. I was going to buy one until I stumbled onto a deal on a used E20.
