Yes, I realised it was new, which is why I said 'I'd expected'. I was just surprised that the company is selling new stock through eBay at half the price of when bought from them directly. It's up to them how they do it, of course, and it may well be that the costs are lower via eBay - I have no idea. But why not be open about it? Aren't standard customers going to be very annoyed?
