    Hey guys, was just wondering if anybody knew of a place I might be able to get my hands on an OM-D(preferably body only, but i'll take whatever) in the NYC area? All the major stores(BH, Adorama, J&R, cameta) are out of course, yet I've heard of many people buying their OM-Ds in local shops. Was wondering if there might be any such place in NYC that I don't know about.

    Thanks!

    I would try walking into B&H and asking, because their online stock and in-store stock can be different. Calling ahead isn't a reliable way to find out.

    Other than that, I would try calling the smaller stores. Google "camera store new york" and call down the list - worked for me.

    Call **********, Willoughby's, 47th Street and Berger Brothers. If you don't mind going out to Jersey, there's also Unique Photo and a couple of others. Good luck.

    I just got my OMD and FL300 flash from Focus Camera.

    I'd avoid Willoughby's like a plague due to price gouging. They raise prices way over retail when items are in demand. I believe they have an OMD kit listed in Amazon at $300 above retail. Might as well pay Digital Rev's price gouging price instead, and not have to pay sales tax.

    You can check Datavision near grand central - that's where I picked one up. They don't have accessories in stock if you want to make use of the rebate, but they offered to order whichever one I wanted and print me a receipt for both when it arrived.
