    Why the heck not. They've got more than enough feedback for me to be satisfied and sell a lot more expensive cameras with positive feedback ratings, I bit the bullet.

    whoa- nice find!

    I think finding deals like this will happen more, once it gets closer to the presumed XZ-2 release time/announcement.

    I wondered what I was going to do with the extra Flipbac grip I bought...:redface:

    All sold out - they had (at least it seems) 500 of them. Wow.

    And yes, I did. I hit refresh watching the numbers go up and up and then when it came to "6 left" I thought I'd give it a go. I just hope it's not an Olimpos :smile:

    Thanks!

    I bought one with 237 sold - the 500 of them were gone 15 minutes later! Sorry I never bought five of them now.... the worst thing that can happen is a refund... :smile:

    I'm holding off paying for a few hours to see what happens - not that I'm worried about a refund but would just prefer to avoid the hassle if it was an error. Strangely I didn't get a ebay email...

    It is a bit strange that the seller is selling the same kit here for $401. Could still come through though as the XZ-2 seems to be imminent, so selling off old stock makes sense.

    Wonder if the menus are all in Japanese??

    I usually follow the credo that if it seems to good to be true, it probably isn't; this time, I let my guard down. We'll see what happens.

    Now THAT is scary!

    No offense meant to any of our Japanese-speaking/reading/writing members...but I'm monolingual - and barely that!

    Google translate blows my mind but to save anybody the hassle -

    私はそう望む = I hope not

    Apparently.

    Looks like the XZ-1s are sold out after 500 sales. That sure was cheap! o_O

    Ned, ask us in a week or so whether it was cheap; not sure what to expect when/if I get to open the box..:eek:

    The XZ-1 was $99 on Amazon 3 weeks ago. No 32GB card or other extras though.
