    The sad thing is that some poor sucker who knows nothing but thinks a big price must mean something wonderful will probably buy it.

    You'd think for the price they could give you expedited shipping for "free".

    Interesting. My body cap lens finally shipped - now I can put it on my $8000.00 E-P1 ! (That's been my plan all along, just didn't know my camera was worth so much.) :eek:  :biggrin:

    Darn - missed it!

    Looks like the listing was closed - should have acted faster :wink:

    Anyone have any E-P1's for sale for less than $5000? I know, I'm unrealistic....but you can always hope!

    I wouldn't pay a dime over $8,000.

    I've got two ... I'm willing to let one for for the measly sum of $2000. Quite a bargain it seems.

    It is Canadian dollars. Isn't that kind of like Yen ? Knock a few zeroes off . . .

    I didn't know they were worth so much. I'll have to take better care of mine from now on.

    I love visiting our neighbors to the north, but the days of heading to Canada to take advantage of the difference in currency valuation are no more. The Canadian dollar is worth more than a US dollar.
