Seems to be an ok price considering the condition which not is too bad.

This camera and the 500SE are almost superior compared to newer rugged and waterproof cameras except for bad video mode and the somewhat bulky body. While there is no real image stabilisation in this one at least it have aperture 2.5 at the wide end which noticeably better than the norm which usually is 3.3 and more common 3.5 or or 3.9

This is also if not the last so at least one of the last old school Ricohs in terms of jpeg-look with belonging low NR whcih other better known models used, like the GRDI Caplio R3 and also GX8 which the 500G and 500SE very much is based on.
