Default Olympus e410 with two lenses or e450 with kit lens

Hi all, I've been offered an Olympus E410 with two lenses ( 14-44 and 40-150 ) for 220 GBP. However, I've also got a chance of an Olympus E450 with a kit lens for 249 GBP. Which of these is the better buy ? Cheers !

I would pass on both offers, unless you personally know the sellers. Buying a used DSLR is like buying a used car.Neither of these cameras have IS.

I'll go with the E-450 but I found both of them too expensive! Try to find a used E-510 (or E-520) and you will get a better camera (with IS). I tried to sell my E-520 with the 14-42mm for about 220 GBP a couple of months ago and I found nobody to take it ... it then became with backup DSLR.

You can also look at www.keh.com (very good place for used camera) and you can get a E-510 for $199USD (http://www.keh.com/camera/Olympus-Di...990972400?r=FE) and just add a lens to it for ~$100USD (http://www.keh.com/Camera/format-Dig...c=55918&r=WG&f).
