Not the case with Jessops, sadly, who just seem to be interested in shifting boxes. (Or the Panasonic 'specialist' shops, either!)

There's an independent in Burton upon Trent who stocks Olympus and Panasonic and offers good prices and excellent knowledge and assistance so they now get my support.
I have had mixed experiences in Jessops. Good service at their Bluewater store, but abysmal knowledge in Maidstone.
Jacobs I can recommend.
