Its more than a good price, it sounds a little suspicious. I hope its froma reputable dealer.

Please use the price grabber link on this site to have an idea of white prices are abouts before you think its a good price or not... Chances are, if a price is too good to be true, it usually is.

I can only compare it with prices over here.
Here it costs 645 Euro = £ 488,-

I got mine for £450 and that was a few months back, so it could be right. Also, you shouldn't have any problems with ebuyer. I haven't bought from them myself but they seem to have quite a good reputation.

When I was looking for mine most prices were between £520 and £550 for the body and two lenses, and then £100 less for the single lens kit, so £420 - £450.

I think I read somewhere else that ebuyer.co.uk get their 510 twin lens kit from the US..
that could be a problem when your guarantee comes into play and you need your cam fixed if something happens.

When I get my 510, I'm getting it from purelygadgets which is selling it for £444.95
Same difference it seems but purelygadgets is off pricegrabber.

I have been looking at one of these as well and spotted the Ebuyer price.

I checked on the Olympus website and if I am reading it correctly, I think all cameras come with a 1 year International warranty. If you then get a European model, you then get a 2 year one.

I have bought many computer components from Ebuyer with no problems.

I have an E-510 twin lens kit (14-42mm F3.5-5.6 & 40-150mm F4.0-5.6) for sale. 2 weeks old! Interested? I decided to purchase 14-54mm F2.8-3.5 + 50mm f/2.0 Macro ED in which case I don't need the kit.

ebuyer is a great store, I've used them many times and their service is top notch. Just call them and ask them if you are worried about warranty. But as far as im concerned, you are buying the product from ebuyer and THEY will look after the warranty. If anything goes wrong you will have to send the camera to them and they will then send it to olympus to repair. Dont be dissauded.
