Having recently joined the Pentax mob I have a bridge camera to get rid of. There was a camera fair locally today and while I was there I asked one of the dealers who advertised that they buy stuff how much he'd give me for a Lumix FZ38. He offered 40. They regularly sell on Ebay for 120-150. Cheeky b*gger!
