Trivia (X) - a bit wonkish.

How to buy a Panasonic Lumix GF2 w/ the 14-42mm lens kit and a 5 year guaranty for only £119 / €137 in 6 easy peasy steps:

(usual street price of £ 600 / € 700)

1. Buy a double lens kit with 14mm + 14-42mm for £400 at

2. Sell the 14mm f2.5 lens on for £170.

3. Wait for the £30 voucher Amazon will send you after dispatching the item. Yes, it's not exactly cash, but I'd easily include Amazon vouchers in EU M3 Money supply...
And you'll have to add an UK address to your address book at Amazon. Surely no problem...

4. Claim a «Free Photography Gift Pack and Five Year Warranty» from Panasonic here. Panasonic will give you not only an amazing 5 year warranty for your camera but also a Lightroom 3 disk (among other gifts). You'll have to pay €10 for shipping though.

5. Wait for the Lightroom 3 disk that Panasonic will send you. No matter what you do, don't open it.

6. Sell your new in box Lightroom 3 disk on for £90.

Finally, after doing all the math you'll get your new GF2 for £ 119 that's € 137...
