    It could have been on display for up to two years. There's not quite enough discount there to tempt me, although from the shop's point of view they have probably pitched it about right if it tempts customers to buy it for the saving.

    I buying a display model, make sure that the full warranty is valid from the day you buy it and try to negotiate a free two year extension full warranty.
    Battery will be a concern, because it will have been charged and probably fully discharged many times. It will have been held and fiddled with multiple times a day, but its shutter count could be quite low. If its screen was free to articulate, there may have been wear and stress in that area.

    It is one superb camera for 150 if that includes the kit zoom lens. It might well be a fantastic bargain to you. Make your mind up quickly or you will miss it.
