Advice needed : C-8080

I have an opportunity to buy a used (like new) Olympus C-8080 for 300 EUR.

No idea if it's a good price (but it's less expensive than a m4/3 lens, and the C-8080's lens is awesome, as is the body's build quality), but I have always been impressed by the C-8080's picture quality and I have always found it a beautiful camera.

I know it has several limitations (max 400 iso, zoom range is not the best in its category, LCD is outdated etc) but I'm really tempted to buy it in spite of all that.

Any advice or opinions ?

Thanks in advance !
