  • ep1

    I have the chance to buy a single lens ep1 kit for for about 135 pounds from a club member. He has had it for only about 5 months and it has had little use. I haven't had a micro 43 camera before so should I go for it at the price?

    It's not dear. Might be worth it if you want to see what the fuss is about.

      Seems like a very good deal to me. As Stephen said it's not much money to see it you like micro 4/3 and if you don't then you might even make some money when you sell it.

          You really can't go wrong at that price, it's a no-brainer!

                    Well, you have several advantages over the EP-1, not least of which a sharper image and the use of the EVF if you get the funds for one. I am sure you'll have fun!

                    I have no FT lenses but have had good experience with cheaper eBay clones for other lens mounts. But of course all electronic coupling is forsaken, so really it's not the same thing.

                      I have one of these winging it's way from China at this very moment. I'll let you know how it stacks up to my MMF2 once it arrives.
