Apparantly the neck strap was not installed correctly and as I hung it from my neck it just completely unraveled and fell on the hard concrete!!

I paid $400 for this thing! I played with it a bit and it seems like everything is fine, zoom, fstop, white balance setting, etc.

Is there anything else I should inspect or check to make sure its working.

There seems to be one problem, but it could be a user error, I took a picture of a subject and it looks different from the lcd to the review screen. While I am looking at it live it looks great, but then when I take the shot it looks slightly different in color, seems to be a yellowish cast.

I cant believe this happened! The body does have a few nicks not major, but noticeable so I probably cant return it. I bought it from a local adray camera shop.

most probably you need to adjust the white balance if the yellowish cast appears on photos taken indoor.

Yeah I did this, but why does the captured picture differ from the preview?

Thanks.

Bec the live view is "as it is" while the shot is affected by the White balance setting

Well I can say this when I would go to take a picture before the drop what I saw on the lcd is what I got.
