I've obviously never visited the UK. We pay for things in £ in what you pay for in $.:sad:

You meant "you've" not "I've". I understand the conversion rate. Later :arrow::arrow::arrow::arrow:

Yes it was a typo. What I meant is that things are much more expensive in the UK then the US. A car that you pay for say a Honda Civic is US$10K will cost £10K in the UK. Same with everything else. The new Mac Mini costs US$499, in UK it is £349. If you take into consideration that the 1£=1US$ it should only cost approx. £270. We also get ripped off in the UK.

I brought my FZ20 for £299, which I beleive is the cheapest anyone has paid to date in the UK. But compared to the US it is still expensive. Noted.
