Sorry people who asked q's about the sale. My statement above wasn't in response to general questions. To explain, shortly after posting here, I was made an offer outside of this site. I didn't want to reply to all the questions I'd received until I knew if the camera was still available which, it turns out it wasn't so it wasn't worth persuing the matter any further.
My strop was in response to the message following my saying it was sold. So john and trask, apologies if I offended you guys.
