Although I can't blame them entirely, it doesn't help if stores don't even carry what I'm looking for.  Whether it's a Best Buy, a Fry's or even a local camera specialist, the mirror-less selection is meager. It's just a few entry models on display (Nikon J1, NEX F3, EPM1, GF5).

With mirror-less, the form factor and ergonomics count for a lot. You don't realize how small these devices are, or how the EVF's really look until you try them in person.

I wouldn't mind paying the sales tax and buying locally, but I can't buy something they won't carry and put on display.

It's such a stark difference from Asia. When I visited Hong Kong earlier this year, every retailer proudly put the latest and greatest in their windows (OM-D, XPro1, NEX 7) and actually sought your business.
