Sony RX100 MIII - US to UK

Hi all,

First post on the forums, please be kind

So, I'm in the market for a new camera - If I'm honest I've never really owned a 'decent' camera, and these days I pretty much rely on my Samsung Note 3 Camera everywhere I go.  However, it's got to the point where my family now have a few SLRs between them, and the image quality from them are simply stunning.  As mentioned then, I'm in the market for a new camera - However I do not want to go down the D/SLR route, but instead want similar quality from a compact camera - Which has led me to the Sony RX100 MIII.

The reviews I've read on the camera, the spec, the lens, everything about it, seem absolutely brilliant.

The question I have for you guys then - Is it feasible that I buy the RX100 MIII from the States, and bring it back to the UK?  I have a friend who is heading out to the States in early July, and could potentially bring me back a camera for 2/3rds of the price it's likely to launch at here in the UK.  The only worry I have is if all the features etc. will work as normal?  The only things I can think to check are the AC Power Adaptor, which seems to go up to 240V so should be fine, and also the Sony Warranty, which I presume is World Wide warranty?  Is there anything I need to take into consideration if I'm planning on doing this?

Many thanks in advance
