When will you be there Ian? And will there be 'new toys' that we can actually play with?

I will be doing one or two talks - it's not yet finalised yet, but I will definitely be there on the Sunday filming a video report about the show for publication that evening.

E-M5s are in short supply but at least two examples are expected to be on the stand, hopefully more.

All I need is an ALMS prototype passing by the stand at full chat so I can test the AF :)
Wish I could get my hands on one for Sebring, might be the answer to my issues.

Ian have the stand demos and talks been finalised yet. Just wondered if you could post timings. Especially on Sunday for me.

Morning all, I will be at Focus today but not 'performing' on the Olympus stand. My stints will be on Tuesday and Wednesday. But I will be hanging around the Olympus stand at some point. I will be producing a video tour of the show that will be published on DPNow.com later today.

I will provide a link from this thread :)

I'm told it's a tad manic :) Should be arriving at Brum International at 11.50, three hours after departing from Hemel, an hour and twenty minutes later than planned.

Welcome to the world of Sunday trains! I've had it so bad so often that I now try to avoid Sunday travel if humanly possible :(

Hi Ian, looking forward to seeing some E-M5 raw files.

Unfortunatley I didn't manage to track down an E-M5 at the Oly stand. I did have a play with a Nikon D800, boy do they weigh a lot. So even after visiting Focus I am no nearer to deciding what to do. Buy an E-M5 and four-thirds adpater or switch to Nikon.

Oh no! Unfortunately only three were available for the show - at one point it was going to be only two. I'm sorry you didn't get to try one.

I only discovered quite late on that one of the cameras was a late pre-production example with v.1.00 firmware. I'm just in the process of uploading the RAWs and JPEGs now.
