Is that anything to do with the 4% solution?

It's a work day, but hopefully I can sneak out a little early if necessary.

You mean when WATSON announces it on the 12th (or before if it's that good)

Only 5 people have contacted me to say that they are interested in the event... rather surprised!

I hope I'm one of them! Still, if there aren't many of us perhaps we will get one each to play with

Ciao ... John

To be confirmed - we have managed to do afternoon/early evening events in the past. Will aim to do the same.

Its the end of the holiday season for many with children or the start of the holiday bargain season for those without!!

I fit into the camp of in-between and will be taking my Olympus camera to Croatia and Italy, and am very sad to be missing out on all the special events being planned by Olympus for the beginning of September, especially as I consider myself to be one of hopefully key targets of the new Olympus camera - a full size DSLR Oly user looking for a semi-pro update. The new camera will be a critical release from my point of view to my staying in the Olympus camp - I will still keep Oly in the family but I for various reasons have to review options once the new camera is released.

So I would dearly love to be at these various events, to get my hands on the camera to try it out, but such hoped for pleasures will have to wait until late September - and then, with all the events done and dusted, where will I be able to see and evaluate the camera? Will you be able to persuade Olympus to hold some later events??
Autumn will be an interesting month in my camera life and the paths will be fraught with many slippy leaves, me thinks!!
All the best with the events, both in terms of all that you put into the Olympus story for us enthusiasts and in terms of Olympus in this world of declining sales and mixed messages.

Regards
Chris

"Prize Giving", so anything other than a straight evening event is out. Sorry Ian.

Perhaps interest will increase once the full details and purpose are known.
