Olympus in the U.S.
Oct 30, 2011

I know I will be flamed for saying it, but it's true.

Olympus has no buzz in America. Their U.S. advertising is basically non-existent. There is no mainstream demand for their products and most young people have never heard of them. And don't tell me that young buyers do not matter.

Oly must create demand among regular camera buyers, not those who use this forum. Without that demand, I do not see how they can survive. Certainly very few stories carry Oly and even fewer salespeople push their products. Those of us here who endlessly discuss Oly products are a minority of a minority of a minority of camera buyers.

I love all my Oly stuff, but I am worried about the future of Oly in the U.S.
