    Snagged one

    Ok so I have an E on order, who knows when.... So I got a sniff via a post on DPR this morning that a store a coupla hours drive away had aN 800 return going. I checked and it has full warranty, and they chucked in two batteries and a heavily discounted 16gb card so I drove, paid, collected and then it got too dark to shoot by the time I got home...

    So tomorrow will tell. I might even get up at a normal hour.... And then I'll have the luxury of choice between this one and the E when it comes at the pre-hike price.

    The one I was about to bid on on eBay, albeit unused, went for a whisker short of 3k... I paid 2,599 for mine with the two spare batteries...
