    I'd take the money AND the gun.
    Either way you get the camera.
    But one option won't cost you, OR it will cost you dearly.
    HPX 170 is a great camera, a gem IMHO.
    Two P2 64s, and two 16s.
    Usually never need more.

    I'm in the same boat. What exactly should I look for in terms of wear and tear besides hours, lens/scratches, making sure the buttons/switches work etc.

    Is there a way to tell if it is a grey market, PAL or anything that should send a red flag?

    Thanks

    You want to look it over, how is the overall condition? Does it look like its been abused?
    Check the glass.
    Confirm the serial #.
    Confirm the hours.
    Shoot some footage and play it back.

    If all that checks out, you're probably good to go.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Just wondering though, how would I confirm the serial number?

    I actually meant the Model#. This will tell you for what region it was built. Japan, USA, Europe, Etc.
