    Re: What would you like to see from Olympus next?

    I would like to see UK customers getting a turn round time for repairs and serving that customers in the US are reporting that they get from Oly US. Typically 3 to 4 days.

      Pound has slid versus the yen. A year ago was "as low as 205.72, its lowest since May 2006" (Reuter, late Jan 2008)
      Now? - 136....

      With a fall of the order of 35% it's not surprising that prices here are going up by.... a mere 15-25% !

        The reason is simple the pound has plunged against other currencies. The manufacturers are charging the same amount or less in yen, euros, dollars or whatever it's just that the pound is worth about 25% less than it used to be. It's not just photographic companies I was talking to someone with a clothing import business and he is experiencing price rises of up to 75%.

          But with people cutting back on 'luxuries' the photographic market will undoubtedly suffer. But at least it won't just be Olympus............!

              For features I suppose yes, but for size no - I'd prefer something a bit smaller. I don't really need a "splashproof" camera either, because none of my lenses are splashproof.

              Some will be doing their best to try to absorb differences in exchange rates, but eventually it won't be helped by the suppliers importing first to Europe and then converting prices from Euros into Sterling.
