MSRP is exactly what it implies- a fixed price recommended by the manufacturer, not the retailer.

It is not an arbitrary, fictitious, made up price by the retailer !!!!!!!!!!!!

The retailer can't lie about the MSRP, I agree with that. Now, "list price" is usually used synonymously, but maybe not in legal terms? I don't know for sure.

List price is often the highest price a competitor is charging for a product. Although if Olympus is selling it for 1399 then that is the list price or should be. Although in a few weeks or months I can see some paying a lot more than that due to product shortages.
