First time I've seen this. If I was able to set up a loan next time I was going on a walk I'd give it a go. It seems like a good idea. In fact next time we get to go to Cardiff I might see if I could try it.

Just thought I'd say that I have a borrowed Pen at the moment. Borrowed the E-P1 with 14-42mm lens from Jacob's in Cardiff. So far it has been an smooth process. I e-mailed last week and got a prompt response from their manager, collected on Saturday from a very friendly lady, and as they aren't open today doesn't have to go back until tomorrow. I'm hoping the return process will go as smoothly. Apparently we are the first people to use the promotion from their store (but to be fair there is no visible publicity). A great idea from Olympus with one major drawback ... I don't want to take it back (I wonder if I'd get a discount on used equipment!!). Will post some shots shortly.
