they are misrepresenting the list price on many items and then indicating they are giving a discount which is actually the real MSLP in the first place and no bargain at all....Misleading and downright wrong!!!!

I have brought this to their attention before on the FL-50 flash and now they are doing it with the price of the OMD EM-1 saying it is 1499.99 and giving $100 off ...

I have purchased many items from them in the past, but will never do business with them again !!!

I just checked Amazon and and it took me a while to figure out what you were talking about

http://www.amazon.com/Olympus-Compact-System-Camera-3-Inch/dp/B00EQ07PG2

$1399 for a preorder with free shipping.

B&H has the same $1399 preorder price with free shipping: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Olympus+OM-D+E-M1&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=

I checked a few more and they all sell it for $1399.  I gather you don't like Amazon saying the "list price" was $1499, but how do you know it wasn't?  What is the "list price"?  Who establishes it?  Probably Olympus; so the conclusion I would draw if I was interested is that the initial "list price" coming out of Olympus was $1499.  I see no reason to assume otherwise.
