 Post subject: Retailers?
PostPosted: Wed Oct 28, 2009 10:08 pm 
I have been to Best Buy, Wal-Mart and Wolf Camera, but none have the E-620 for me to preview. Any ideas on a national or local to Chicagoland retailer where my wife and I can preview the E-620?

Thanks!

Google is your friend. :)

I don't live anywhere near Chicago, but I can find the stores (as in true retailers you can physically go to) carrying Olympus DSLR's after a few clicks:

http://www.wolfcamera.com/search/Olympu ... al-cameras

http://www.calumetphoto.com/ctl?ac.ui.p ... ry=olympus SLR¨

http://www.ritzcamera.com/search/Olympu ... al-cameras

P.S. America doesn't appear to have many dedicated camera retailers. Either you have Best Buy or some super specialist grandpa store selling camera antiques.

Your PS comment seems to be right on the money! Both Ritz & Wolf camera (actually the same company) by me don't stock the E-620. The other two are almost a hour away (Chicagoland area is big). However, thank you very much for taking the time to google. I'll do it again also and hopefully find some small stores closer to me.

Thanks!

Helix camera on Racine should have it, theyve had all the others.

Also Calumet has a location in Chicago not far from Helix and it always has a good selection, though not the best prices. Helix has so far had the cheapest prices ive seen at Brick and Mortar stores. Still I choose to buy online.


Oh word of advice, the Helix location in Highland Park does not carry Olympus products, only the one on Racine [next to UIC campus]

we have a continental camera near by. They had the 620. I got to hold it. Put the 300mm lens on it. I was have some good times. But I wanted to check out the 520. but they were refusing to carry it anymore. BOOOO!!! wanted to compare grips at the time.

Don't forget if you end up buying from Calumet, please click through to them via our partner store page first!
