I'm sorry for creating this thread to ask a useless/stupid question. But I am just really really curious. Why do cameras like the OM-D cost more in the UK? I just went to the UK Amazon and checked that their OM-D prices were 992 pounds which is equivalent to $1562. That is $562 more than what we pay! 1. Is it that they are making a higher average salary? or is it that 2. Everything is relative. $999 here in the US is equivalent to $992 pounds for them. So it is just as affordable here as it is there. The only difference is the strength of their economy to ours. or 3. It just straight up costs more for them. Sorry for my stupid question. I don't understand economics at all. I haven't taken a single economic class in college and only took a single semester in high school. So if someone could explain it to me in layman's terms, I would really appreciate it. It would be a good lesson in economics.
