Upcoming events which may include the EM1 II

Prompted by SimonBee's post about an event in Camarthen http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...t=42966&page=4

I took a look at my local camera dealer in Cardiff and found 2 more events that may include the EM1 II http://www.cameracentreuk.com/events-43.html

Upcoming Events


Olympus Show Day

Thursday 17th November, Camera Centre UK Cardiff Shop

Don't miss your chance to get hands on with the latest award-winning Olympus equipment. Meet Olympus expert Jez Sugars who will be available all day to answer technical questions on both new and original members of the Olympus Micro Four Thirds range. This is a fantastic chance to try out the equipment before buying it!



Olympus & Vanguard Show Day

Saturday 3rd December, Camera Centre UK Cardiff Shop
I'll not be around on the 3rd so I hope very much that the 17th may include it

It occurred to me a thread with maybe useful events was a possibly useful idea so I started a new one

Regards
Andy

Re: Upcoming events which may include the EM1 II

They have a whole programme of similar events organised:

http://www.olympus-imagespace.co.uk/...s-demo-days-2/

They are coming to the good folks at LCE in sunny Salisbury at the end of November. I think I will turn up at opening time and camp in the shop for the day

Re: Upcoming events which may include the EM1 II

Thanks for that info John. Seems that Oly is really trying to spread the word.

Re: Upcoming events which may include the EM1 II

That's interesting our anti virus flags up Olympus imagespace from those links as harmful !?

Re: Upcoming events which may include the EM1 II

And yet again no events in the north or south of Ireland although when I contacted Olympus Imaging they claim to be looking into arranging one/ some over here.
Hope they manage as I am not very happy to spend what is a lot of money ( on a pension ) to purchase a camera body without even seeing or handling one! Hoping for some honest unbiased reports by people from this site.
I wish they would announce price and any offers; grip, batteries etc as it would let me know if it is even in my price range.

Some 4/3 lenses an E 30 body and an E5 body and grip will be going on the market soon if the new price is right may also part with my mk1EM1 body.

I went to the Cameraworld event in London on Saturday. They had the new lenses there to try out, but the E-M1 MkII was locked in a glass case and not allowed out even to just hold.


The 12-100 was sweet.

Keeping it in a glass case is worse than not even having it there Steve!

Re: Upcoming events which may include the EM1 II

Posted by damianmkv in the E-M1 MKII review thread elsewhere on this forum...a link to preview days/events showcasing the new camera.

Hope it proves useful to some of you.
