    Results are skewed by Amazon not grouping together identical cameras in different colours. Canon and Nikon tend to release their DSLRs in one colour so they will always appear near the top of the list. Where would the Olympus E-PL1+14-42mm Lens appear in the Amazon US list if colour was ignored? If manufacturers start taking these rankings seriously, we the customers will lose out as they will only release cameras in one colour so as to improve their rankings. Additionally, they may also choose to offer a reduced number of kits to the same end.
