Quite a lot: 870 pounds. I wanted to buy local in case I had to send it back etc. and yes it was probably leftover stock...

A feature that would be nice is a a stylus-sensitive screen to scribble down notes about the picture being displayed. I went to Ethiopia and shot several little churches. I had a little notebook to write down their names. Needless to say I lost it and my bookkeeping was not very thorough anyway. I had to refer back to guides, sometimes to no avail. Impromptu street portraits could be another possible application (to write down the name of the person). I guess photojournalists would love that.

I second that re the vendor.

I was one of the three people mentionned in chuck's post. Anyway I had to try three times before it worked. The first time without the supplied plastic shin. The second time, the plastic shin was probably not very well aligned and the latch was hard to close and as a result the focus was completely off. But I was lucky the third time and it works fine as far as I can tell: the green light is on when lines are aligned in the split screen. here's some visual steps it's in chinese but clear enough for me (NB in image No6, the "pliers" are pulling towards the outside):

Also I prefer to keep the camera upside down all the time keeping the latch opened with my left hand (and an appropriate tool) whilst I do the manipuplations with the right hand. I must say it's not difficult but definately not for the faint hearted (I'm borderline...).
