I've been looking around to try get the cheepest price for an E85 that has VHF & UHF capability and think that I have found a fantastic price from a German online store (www.technikdirect.de). The machine, including delivery via DHL or UPS was only 460 which is about £323.00 . Also, unlike many of these German sites you can select the language that you speak (English in out case) and you have no problems reading from it. I don't know of anywhere else where you will get this product for less. I'm hoping that I will have this by the end of the week and if so I will let you know how I get on. With regards to warranty, if you experience any difficulties with the machine you can rely on Panasonic's warranty in your own country of residence and send it to your local repair agent if needed.
