    I've read in a few threads that Olympus has global warranty. So does it really matter whether or not the camera is a grey import? Will you still receive warranty services from Olympus at the location you're in?

    Edit: gosh I just realised I may have started this thread in the wrong sub-forum, sorry about that!
