I see David Bailey has been out in Afghanistan, I wonder if he used the E5?

I know that in the dim and distant past he was a great advocate of the OM system but is he the same of the E-System?

Now I saw him somewhere as an ambassador for the Pen system.
I was taken with a comment attributed to him ' set it to F8, Iso 400 and shoot'.


If its the Pen at least its portable in a war situation. A bit like a L****.

He is/was indeed a supporter of the e system, he turned out for the press when the E3 was launched, I understand he has also attended events for the E30 and E620.

I was there when he opened Park Cameras and he spent a lot of time around the Olympus sales stand.

Thinking about it, perhaps this is where the Oly marketing budget goes:rolleyes:

If I remember rightly Lord Snowden was also a great fan of Olympus.

Patrick Litchfield certainly was but I don't know about Snowdon.

He don't get any bonnier? mind you he has nothing to come back for.

Didn't he do that black and white of Christine Keller sat in a chair backwards? I always though it was a very iconic photo of the time
