Be critical when buying a used/new camera online
3

I bought an EM-1 II from MPB and the price and camera are both very good. However, when the camera came, it was without a memory card, USB11 cable, and even a strap and 
D rings. It may well be that those items were omitted in the advertisement, which could happen with any seller. But it is also possible that the reason these items were omitted (not just by this seller) was to make a few extra bucks. The cost for the Memory Card, Cable, D- rings and Straps was not a big deal, just a hassle. It was about $60 US. But it lessened the advantage from buying used/new online. Glazer's of Seattle had all these parts. The camera is fantastic - more on that later.
