In other words, introductory rebates are a separate issue. Thing is, some kind of rebate is offered in each region, and the items have a retail value that is approximately equal.

In N. America, it's the MMF3 or FL300R, retail price of these is ~$200. But the HLD7 also retails for $200. All 3 are worth about the same. Which accessory qualifies for rebate does NOT change the overall price, or value received.

But the retail value and COST to Olympus are two different things.Naturally, these questions just barely scratch the surface concerning the financial nuances of the camera business. I'm not an accountant, though having run my own business for a long time, I have some idea of the complexities of profit and loss. If you are an accountant and/or have deep knowledge of Olympus' financial practices, well, I am quite sure you shouldn't be writing about it on an internet forum.

Here's the deal. When it's done and said, I'd still greatly prefer a rebate on something I can really use (the HLD-7), rather than for stuff I already have (MMF3, et. al.).

Artists must not only see, but see what they are seeing.

I would gladly pay an extra $50, perhaps even $75 to have the rebate apply to the grip rather than a flash- which I doubt they could produce for an in-house cost of $5 or the mount, which they might just be able to.
