Re: Olympus Ignored By Media & Retailers?

My recent experience with a local retailer may go some way to explain why Olympus may not get the billing in stores that we would like to see.

In May I bought an XZ1 and shortly after decided that I wanted the VF2 electronic viewfinder. The shop that supplied the camera told me that some months previously they had chosen to be an elite retailer of Pens for Olympus. Now given their elite status and the fact that the VF2 is a current accessory it would seem that there shouldn't be a problem with Olympus being able to supply one of their prime retailers with this item. After 6 weeks, however, the shop has not yet been able to get hold of one.

As I say maybe this shines a small light on the question posed by this thread.
