Well I couldn't believethe price that was on the FZ20 in the window soI went into the shop to ask and the assistant said the price was correct at £299.99p.

I have just checked dealtime and the cheapest on there was £350 so this is definitely the cheapest in the UK.

Yesterday eBay in the UK had NOTHING in the way of FZ20s

Today there are many, all on there way from Hong Kong, all around £300.

This triggered by the FZ5 perhaps? :?

Nothing wrong with Hong Kong. I received mine yesterday in silver and an extra battery.

I've also ordered a 1Gb SD card.

hmmm.... £300 = about $564 US. Not bad, but also not far off the "normal" MSRP for this camera. have you tried some of the other websites that offer these cameras for under $500 US (about £265)? Even with shipping, i suspect you could get a better deal... unless, of course, taxes in the UK on imported goods make a foreign purchase cost-prohibitive...

everything is expensive in the uk. you wont find it much cheaper than that i dont think. and you're right, it isnt far off the RRP in america. not even sure what it is in the uk. but i bought mine over in america, was still close to the RRP after american tax, but didnt pay any UK duty on it. then again i bought it from a reputable site, didnt want any of the hassle ive heard people getting from the ones selling at under $500.
