If Olympus had been aggressive in pricing, the D7100 would have been toast this Christmas.

Oh please. Here (USA), Olympus can't even get their product on store shelves, and have virtually no advertising.

I think that getting stock into stores is the bigger half of the problem. If they price the cameras competitively then I think retailers would be a lot more inclined to stock them. But right now it seems like Panasonic and Olympus are both skimming the cream from the enthusiasts who are willing to pay a premium for their gear.

Canon and Nikon are able to offer North American retailers more margin with various methods ,longer payment terms and take more risk than what Oly and Panny can, but Canikon might get their fingers burnt in the USA if any of the retailers file for bankruptcy like Jessops did in the UK leaving Canikon £20 million out of pocket...
