I popped into the Cardiff branch of Jacobs and was happy to see that the SLR desk was littered with Olympus glossies and there was even an E-510 sitting in a shiny frame for you to pick up and play with.

There did seem to be a lot of interest - maybe now that Olympus have got a "Critical Mass" in terms of the range of kit the shops will take them more sriously.

Hi Ian

Maybe a forum section on shops and suppliers should be added for comments on how they are doing Olympus related.

Re the .sig?
THAT is a light weight kit...
Try 2xE-1, with SHLD-2 grips, 11-22, 14-54, 50-200, EC14, FL-50, FP-1, plus all the cables etc, and then try my son's Nikon outfit!

Hi Tim
