My experience is more in line with Chris's: whenever a buyer is
presented with a choice of several similarly priced new cameras,
which includes an OM-2000, he/she invariably picks the OM-2000,
or at least gives it a very serious consideration.

IOW, this little OM-2000 is an extremely attractive entry in
this "student camera" category, and it practically sells itself.
IMHO, the problem must be with Olympus/Olympus USA: apparently,
they make little effort to motivate their authorized dealers
to sell more OM-2000's.
