Olympus in the shops

I popped into the Cardiff branch of Jacobs and was happy to see that the SLR desk was littered with Olympus glossies and there was even an E-510 sitting in a shiny frame for you to pick up and play with.

There did seem to be a lot of interest - maybe now that Olympus have got a "Critical Mass" in terms of the range of kit the shops will take them more sriously.

Hi Ian

Maybe a forum section on shops and suppliers should be added for comments on how they are doing Olympus related.

Regards
Andy

Yup - I go to those places as well! I call them caves !!
