Or did the salesman sense that you were a tyre kicker (the most unredeeming attitude from sales staff) and not bother trying to appear knowledgeable for you

May have. Don't know. Was pretty direct, he asked if he could help, I asked to see EM-1. I clearly new what I was interested in. I can understand their frustration but when they treat customers as tyre kickers it shows in their attitude and results in customer frustration. Painful as it is think they need to treat all like potential customers, never know who will be and who won't.

Salesmen who treat me as a "tyre kicker" get a tyre kicker in return. You have a fellow traveller here.  It is easy to sell stuff to the unknowledgeable.  But my business goes to those who are interested in having my business and are knowledgeable about their product.  They are called "salesman" after all not hereditary keepers of the till.
