    If its for-real then its an amazing deal but its hard to believe that real.... I mean why $480 and not $500 for a list price? Please be cautious anyone pursuing this and meet at a very public place with lots of people around.

    seems too good to be true - I'd be worried something doesn't work right on that thing.

    It does not seem that out of range, depending on condition and seller's need for a sale. On occasion, I have seen them sell in this range (as well as higher), but it is always good to be careful.

    It's good to be wary, but not all deals are scams....I picked up an E-M1 w/12-40 2.8 with 200 shutter count and receipt made out to cash for $1400 and was able to send in the UPC codes. It was off kijiji, which is about the same as craigslist. Seems some people need to sell and offer a low price to avoid haggling, and want to sell ASAP.
    Do your homework, but don't avoid a good.
