Sorry I don't follow the reference to driving to Leeds. Have I missed something? I was just talking about what I saw on the video.It looked like he was opening it for the first time to me... if he bought it from an authorised dealer, the person at the camera shop would have opened it up to fill out the warranty card.
Doubt he drove to Leeds to pick it up. Also my last 1d, the reseller didn't open the box before I picked it up. I did that when I got it back to the office.
Didn't he say he ordered it from a supplier in Leeds and he lives in London?
