Nikon d80

I am looking for a mirrorless camera...
But...
Someone just offered me a Nikon d80 with a lense (that may need to be replaced) for $150.
I realize this camera is over 10 years old (having been released in 2006), but I'm also brand new to the photography game and just need to practice learning aperture, shutter speed and ISO for now.

Is there something else I should try instead?
Is $150 too high?
Should I just spend the few hundred ($350 more) on an Olympus mirrorless?

Get the mirrorless. Getting the mirror potentially replaced will set you back quite a bit.

Well, it'd be the lense... The body itself is in good shape.

I don’t know much about the Olympus, but I’m pretty sure you won’t be happy with the Nikon after a short time, 10MP seems rather limiting, and the price could be better especially without a lens.

The price without the lense on eBay is $100...
I was going to figure out why her lens was a might need replacing. I know the cool, so it's casual. But yeah, I think I'm going to pass on it. Too old.

Olympus makes a great mirrorless camera. You could also go for the Canon EOS M10 it uses an 18MP sensor and if you get an adapter you have the entire line of Canon EF lenses to use as well. I own a Canon 50D but I'm debating grabbing an EOS -M as walk around camera as for $349 with a 15-45 lens it's hard to beat

$450 everywhere, including Best Buy.

At which point, I'm back at the Olympus!

Weird the sale must be a Canada only thing. I'd still say that the M10 is a better buy as the Olympus lenses are more expensive and there are fewer of them
