Meh. I think the people at these organizations know more about business than we do.

When you say "these organisations",

Sorry. Guess I should have just said "businesses".

are you including Olympus in that?

OUCH.......that's low. I have no dog in the fight but I am sure Olypmus will recover. They have been around too long and have too many faithful fans. Thier products aren't for me but I wish luck to those that enjoy them .

I hope they do, I'm a fan.

I guess my point was that these businesses have people who's entire day consists of observing the markets with much better data than we have and setting prices. I have my opinions on soem market forces BUT I don't for one second pretend I know better than they do

I think from a consumer perspective it's pretty simple, either a product is too expensive for that individual or it isn't.

While some might think Sony's prices are a little high, they have decent sales relatively so obviously it's not much a problem for them.

So I guess they don't need to "adjust their prices", at least not yet, maybe when other companies can offer stronger competition.
