    I'm after a decent compact system camera/micro four thirds, for my upcoming trip to Paris.

    Doesn't need to be brand new or top of the range, in fact I'm looking to spend as little possible.

    I like the look of the Olympus EPL series and the Panasonic alternatives, but please offer what ever you have.

    Only issue is I leave on Satuday, so would need it to arrive before then. Shouldn't be a problem if posted RMSD, or another guaranteed next day service by Thursday.

    A little rich for me. Don't want to put that sort of money in to a camera right now. Cheers for the offer though.

    Probably closer to the £150 mark. Not saying that's what your cam is worth, that's just what I'm looking to spend at present.

    Fair enough, you might pick up an EP3/EPL3 for that price. Still good IMO

    I'm not hugely taken by it, mainly due to the sensor being smaller than four thirds. Let me know the price still, as I might still be interested.

    I have an Olympus E-PL5 in new condition, boxed with the older-style kit 14-42mm lens which I'd like £200 for.

    @snowy151 what do you mean by "older style kit lens"? Can you provide a link or photo?

    Was it one that came with the camera?

    Yes it's the one that came with the camera when I bought it new about a year ago. Looks like the same one as in this review Olympus PEN Lite E-PL5 Review - DigitalCameraReview
