Bertt, i've moved those technical details in here, as they were taking over the front page when you view it from there. It's best to have a shortish spec in the OP then bulk it out here if necessary.

Thanks for the post!

Thanks - I was concerned by comments in previous posts about a lack of information - will be more concise in future...

Cold! Actually I'm rather pleased as I dislike Sony in many ways - especially their restrictive approach to music and brand specific media - but these are not applicable to this product (Minolta tech and generic digital media). Why?

This looks like the same camera and kit lens for £355.99, that could be why the cold rating.

Thanks for your post - I sometimes think this forum is just a product of my under-active imagination.

The link you have posted is from a rather dubious company in Hong Kong and does not include VAT and any other costs incurred. If you add all of the costs of buying from them I think you will find my original posting good value and a little more secure...

Ah ok, apologies for that, I didn't notice they were one of those Hong Kong based ones.

Had another look around and you are quite right, that is a pretty good price, cant see any reason for it to be cold.
