Default How do you tell if its a refurb?

Hi helpful folks out there!
I live in Greece and am looking for a digicam to help me in producing educational software - photo heavy! I have found a really good offer on a C2100 in one shop (~350 $), its considerably less than almost 150 dollars in another shop. But 150 sounds a BIG difference to me - so my question is how can i tell if it is refurbished? It has a 2 year guarantee and the guy says its new. How do i check?
I want to take pictures of trees and parts of trees/fruit/blossoms nature etc suitable for good photos on cd but also for scientific publishing in periodicals - do you reckon this will do the job well? I see a lot of you folks rave about it. Everything else i find in shops is mostly newer and a lot more expensive than back home in uk and i will be paying well over the odds for fewer features in the budget range i can afford, this seems like a real bang for bucks offer - is it a good choice?
Any advice will be appreciated.

Well, the 100% sure was is to obtain the serial number of the camera, call it in to Olympus and ask.

lg is right. That way you will also find if it is supposed toi be sold in Greece, and if the Warranty is valid.
