Who buys their gear from a retailer, or an official Olympus Dealer and who buys their gear privately or a non official seller?

usually get bodies from local (50kms) 'trade' supplier fro warrantee reasons
they will keep Olympus examples from trade shows with my name on it in the event I buy

exceptions: I need something in a hurry and they cant obtain in time or prices are beyond dumb
ie: GH2 came fro Taiwan for circa US$700, I hacked it so menus have PAL, arrived in 6 days

lenses and extras: a lot less vigilant on warrantee
ebay a lot, reputable traders, prepared to take a hit if something falls over or just plain sux
include opportunity buys that just cant be turned down

I do not need the names of the sellers, retailers or dealers.

thats just as well
word up: Moooooo

Whether you pay full retail or get a discount also does not matter.

Both used or new apply.

Olympus should market like Tesla are going to do, dont leave out servicing and assistance
its not a cost thing, its a smart thing
put some effort into it
