On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review (860 comments in total)

Today I received an email from Sony requesting that I…’ Help other shoppers by writing a review about the dsc-rx100m3’. There appears to be more than enough positive things to said about the product – so I thought I would offer my reflections upon another aspect of the Sony experience.
Have you noticed that wherever you look; the purchase the price is almost identical… The resultant impression is that RPM (see Wiki) seems to be employed?
I found a local stockist who, while offering the rx100m3 on his web site could NOT publish any price BUT the full RRP. He could discount it (marginally) across the counter but if he published this marginal discounted price on his web site, Sony would remove him from their list of stockist!
Now I am not saying what Sony are doing is illegal (I suppose that would depend on the laws of the country) but it does seem very, very heavy handed and creates the impression that they are trying to influence the market.
I will leave you to be the judge……?
