I am fairly sure there is only one version, but Ian will know for certain.

only one version so far

when it first came out there were a batch recalled - but these were neither the first run nor was a change implemented (ie something went wrong in some way on the production line)

If you're after a new one at a bargain price, check Ian Kerr. Trades as "Flash Camera" on Ebay, but if you contact him direct prices are even cheaper. kerso1123@msn.com is his email. I've spent thousands with him and absolutely no problems.

He is located in the states and he get lots of emails. If you do not get a reply in a day or so, try again.

He is. He's rung me a couple of times querying my orders. He speaks wi' a Scottish accent as well! Just occasionally he hasn't replied for a day or so, but normally within one day.

He ships from scotland, and yes he is scottish, but he (last time I spoke to him) was living in the USA.

Maybe he splits his time - he phoned me from an Arbroath number on a couple of occasions (admittedly quite a few months ago!). Which would explain the odd delay in emails.

You can't help but feel slightly nervous when you have parted with a few hundred pound to some one you don't now who is possibly in usa or maybe Scotland!

I don't think you need be nervous, as several have already said they have bought alot of gear from him in the past and have been very happy - and I include myself in that group too.

Hiya
I sent Ian an email asking for a quote last night and got a reply back at 5pm today. Good price as well (Cheaper than his ebay pricing). He got my order, and acknowledged it within 30 minutes. (Oly 50-200 SWD) Can't wait for it to arrive.

Normally I would agree with you, but Kerso's reptutation, is pretty good. I see him as an advertiser on Talkphotography all the time and he'd soon get short shrift if he were a bad un from them.
