Re: So much for anti-virus software!

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

Curses :mad:

One of the talks I especially want to go to is from 12:00 to 13:00. This of course clashes with the annual informal meet of forumers at the Oly stand.

Law of Sod or what :(

Re: L-Bracket for the OM-D E-M1 MKII

Regrettably no in this context. I have seen those and even sent a question to the supplier asking about a MKII version. The answer was in the negative.
