Received mine today, for $259 shipped. Box looks to have been around for awhile but it was still sealed. Only concern for me was the battery dated 9-2013, but it charged up fine. Excellent deal! Thanks for the heads up ;)

I'm with ya @Biro. My G85 arrived today.. but I just ordered one of these for 1/3 the price. Just when I'd convinced myself I 'need' 4k photo tricks and weather seals too. :eek:

The G85 will remain unopened a bit longer while I contemplate the choice of small bargain vs modern marvel..

If nothing else, what a great camera to keep in the car trunk or glovebox with the 14-42 EZ on it.

Even though I started this thread, I have resisted the urge to NAB one of these new E-P5s. I'd rather buy another factory-reconditioned unit whose dials have been upgraded with more-reliable components. Plus, I just bought my second E-P5; I can't be sure that "need" a third body until I've lived with two bodies for a while.

Yes it's definitely worth swapping out my GX1 at this price. Rather than a G85 'replacement' I think this is the 20/25mm lens I thought I was buying soon.
It's definitely the astro-camera, I look forward to live time with my clock-drive telescopes :)

update - shipped, will arrive Tomorrow. Considering the g85 came from the east coast by pony express :sleep: that's silly fast!
updated update - maybe not arriving today. Tracking shows it went from San Diego to NEW YORK on its way to Portland! That's about the dumbest thing I've heard, and I've heard a few whoppers..

This thread is such a neat counterpoint to the EM1X threads.
Amazing how much has changed in 5+ years..except perhaps the sensor? I still hear some contend the extra 4Mpx is of little incremental value and Oly/Sony have not made any big leaps since the em/ep5. Massive changes in nearly every subsystem though.

Personally I'm not a fan of AI crowding out my limited but very personal NI.. maybe I'm a budding neo-luddite and this purchase is step one!

Camera arrived, battery charged. More like new/other condition, given the attached screen protector and some settings were not reset. Still at 68 clicks I should just relax & enjoy :rolleyes-38:

This one is also at FW 1.2 so updating that will take care of any previous settings!

Interesting. So slightly used? Did anyone else receive theirs with a screen protector attached?
The seller has another listing for open-box black E-P5--same price but the buyer must add about $17 for shipping. I'll bet those are unused.

I did, but didn't check the shutter number. Seems completely brand new to me. Did need the updating, but no problem. Every thing seems like new, to me. Of course, now I have 2 E-P5's, and a Pen F, so .... don't tell!
