ffordes have always been very reasonable with their pricing, in my view more accurately selling at an item's real value rather than the seller's often inflated view on ebay.
I upgraded my 5 when the 5N came out simply because I wanted to use the add-on evf. I found the 5 a very likeable camera and the 18-55 lens actually better than the amount of criticism it has received. Yes, it is soft in the corners, but overall it is not a disappointing lens at all.
However, without spending a lot, can I suggest you look at a prime lens, the Sigma 30mm, which is a very sharp lens across the frame, and offers the equivalent fov of a 45mm lens in 35mm film camera terms. Currently it can be found new for around £100, or marginally less if you scout around.
