Default Help: Is "PANASONIC DMC-FZ28EB-K" the same as an FZ28

Hi all,
I'm a newbie, and a bit confused about the variations in camera names:

Is "Panasonic DMC-FZ28" = "PANASONIC DMC-FZ28EB-K" = "panny FZ28"?

I've finally decided to buy a Panasonic DMC-FZ28, and am shopping around for the best price, so need to know whether the different descriptions mean different cameras.

Also:
What are the best places to shop for cameras, and the sdhc memory cards, in the UK?
Amazon, Ebay?, where else?
Jessops seems a bit pricey, but I'll check them too.


Many thanks in advance.

The trailing "K" is the color code for 'Black'. The other choice is "S" for 'Silver'.

The "EB" seems to be exclusive to the UK, so I think it has something to do with the configuration of the electrical outlets there.

The rest, the "DMC-FZ28", is just the camera.

So, yes, the "PANASONIC DMC-FZ28EB-K" is the FZ28.

Note that the DMC-FZ28 is now a discontinued model. It's being replaced by the DMC-FZ38 (a.k.a., DMC-FZ35 in the U.S.)
