The Photography Show - NEC March

The Photography Show is in its second year at the NEC Birmingham, March 21st-24th.

I didn't go last year as it clashed with a professional conference for work, but there's no clash this year, so I've just booked a ticket for Sun 22nd. ... Anyone else going along?

Olympus are exhibiting. Would it be too much to hope for a massive show discount on the 40-150 f2.8 Pro...?! ...

If it is anything like last year when the 12-40 wasnt even available, I suspect not. But I live in hope. My club will be going up by coach on the monday again.

LCE had them for £700 which was a very good price then.

Must have missed that. Anyway, I got mine from HDEW for about 530 last summer. They are selling the 40-150 for 1099 last time I looked.
it would be good to see you again Ed.

Looks like I'm going to have to go on Saturday this year so will miss you all this year. If I get any good tips I'll post them on the forum before Monday.

Re: The Photography Show - NEC March

I'm going to be there on the Saturday, Phil.
We may have conflicting bookings for presentations, workshops etc so it might well not be possible, but drop me a PM nearer the event if you feel like meeting up for a coffee there at some stage.

I am booked for Monday as well.

Last year we had an informal get together on the Oly stand at a set time, 12:00 I seem to recall, so why don't those of us there on Monday do the same this year?

As it sounds like coffee etc. will be easier to get at than the scrums last year we could also have a quick coffee before dashing off to presentations, bargain hunting, enjoying images or information gathering.


cheers


Hec
