Ebay has a pretty good return policy - if the seller sends you the wrong item, they will pay to ship it back and refund your money.The add is sloppy but that seems like a good price. If I were looking for an EP-5 this would be worth a shot IMO. A return is not too big of a deal if something is not right. The seller has a 100% rating so far.
Thanks! In fact, he has TWO listings for 10 black New E-P5s at that price..and $259 is the SHIPPED price!Same seller (IvytechLLC) now has a second ad for 10 new in box EP5’s for $259 with free shipping. He’s also fixed his images, no more Samsung NX...
As an ebay seller myself, what it appears to be is that sometimes if the seller isn't careful, ebay includes their own product specs list and it isn't always correct to the model item you're selling. In my opinion that's what I think happened here, which in a way is out of the control of the seller unless he catches the mistake before posting the listing.The add is sloppy but that seems like a good price.

Likely new old stock (NOS) - brand new inventory that was sitting in a store or at a distributor and was recently discovered.I used to have an E-P5 and I used to have a VF-4. I now have the Pen-F and prefer its built-in EVF. But the thought of a brand-new unused E-P5 is intriguing.
Without a viewfinder, would I use this camera more than, say, my Sony RX100 Mark V (bought cheap as a Best Buy open-box special)?
BTW, the ad says "brand new U.S. model."
