bought panasonic dmr e20 january last year for £999 first in my area. good machine. massive gripe is this model finished being manufactured september to be replaced by the dmr e30 much improved minus the firewire port on sale for £390. either the dmr e20 was vastly overpriced or the dmr e30 is a steal. unfortunately that puts the value of mine around £275 second hand or for upgrading, this while still under guarantee. shop i bought from has a dmr e20 on sale at £899 but with a dmr e30 on sale at £440 there is no interest in dmr e20. salesman says compensation ought to be made but changing model no. probablly negates such occurrance happening. what are your thoughts?
