Why Is Using OEM For Cameras A Turnoff?

All else being equal, why is using OEM for cameras a turnoff? This is not a [manufacturer] specific question as this view seems to be a common theme.

I'm just trying to better understand why an integrator/reseller would care whether a subset or even all of a manufacturer/brand's products are OEM if one assumes the price/performance value, tech support/documentation, inventory level and general business practices of a manufacturer/brand are competitive.
