    I'm looking for a decent low miles E-P1. I sold mine and now I realize that I probably should have kept it as an extra body for when I need it. I'd consider an E-P2 but I have a limited amount to spend on a third body so It would depend on what you want price wise.

    I also have a GF2 that is sitting around unused so if you're interested in a trade I'm open to that as well. Just to be up front here...I AM NOT INTERESTED IN AN E-PL1.

    The EP1 makes a super back-up body, and the value is so low, there's little reason not to have one :)

    Yeah that's what I was thinking and I remember liking shooting with it under certain circumstances. It'll be a nice companion for my G2. And if I end up with the GF2as well I can press that into duty doing video.

    I have one, but you need to find a replacement LCD or send it in for repair (Olympus flat fee is like $160 or something). I'll sell it cheap.

    Okay when I said "sad little E-P1s" I wasn't thinking THAT sad. Do you know if when you send it for a repair they do a general tuneup or do they simply repair the broken part and send it back? The only problem is that $160+whatever you'd sell it for+shipping starts creeping into used E-P2 territory.

    Hmmm...

    I've got an e-p1, silver body & Aki Asahi skin. Low miles. Never abused. No issues- works flawlessly. I'll look at it when I get home, but I don't believe there are ANY marks, scratches, etc on it. Has a domke gripper strap. I'll post a few pics later today if you think you may be interested.

    Olympus normally does thefull tune-up. It may be possible to get the LCD done cheaper, but Olympus is the only one I know of for sure, so that's like a "maximum cost" scenario. You are right about creeping into E-P2 territory though. That's why I've been so undecided myself wha to do with this camera (and my E-3 as well!). I've just been using it as a photo prop to show my lenses, lol.

    My EP1 died, and I shipped it to Oly. They originally quoted $180 I think, and I said that's more than it's worth, and then they came back and said they'd repair it for $140 (including return shipping, and I had already paid the shipping there). There was some issue with the sensor reading data to the card. I figured that was worth it, as it would be the same cost to buy a 2nd body, and they said they also gave me a new 6 month warranty on the repaired one. No idea if that helps you, but I thought I'd let you know about it, and if you (Ned or dixeyk) get one repaired, just ask for a lower repair cost. Can't hurt.

    Every time you bump i feel a little guilty that mine is sitting idle. Someone please sell your E-P1 to assuage my guilt.

    I do have a low mileage, but slightly cosmetically challenged black/gray E-P2. I think I have used it for around 500-1000 images. When I picked up the E-P3, my plan was to keep it around for backpacking and winter stuff. Now I am feeling comfortable taking the E-P3 out in those conditions, though, and so the E-P2 has just been sitting on the shelf.

    There is a tripod mount scratch on the bottom, along with a couple light scuffs. On the sides, there is a light scratch on the USB connector cover, and a chip out of the finish where I failed on a leather skin application (piece pulled up on removal). The back and top are clean, so a properly applied leather skin would make this look pretty nice overall.

    If you have any interest in this (priced right, taking into account $300 new bodies and cosmetic imperfections), I would be glad to send images. I like this little guy, but would rather see it getting used than sitting on my shelf gathering dust.

    No thanks, I don't care for the E-PL1. I had one and I really didn't like the controls at all.
