Photo Show first day

An impressive discount on the EM1 mk2 1249 at the show today, amazing price drop. 12-100 was 849 at LCE too another bargain price. The Panny 100-400 was 1099 same as last year but no one had any*I'm afraid. I had an enjoyable day and for the first time didn't buy anything so I'm in good books at home too, for a change.
Saw some excellent talks too. A couple on astro-imaging and one on wildlife photography by Tesni Ward who showed a real dedication to her craft and some excellent images. Shame she had to cope with a lousy sound system.

Re: Photo Show first day

I did have a play with the Panasonic 100-400 and the 200mm f2.8 but as my camera was in for cleaning didn't get any comparison shots. I liked the 100-400 though but no one had one for sale. Looks like others like that lens too. I didn't try the f1.2 lenses as we attended several talks and just didn't have time. I also didn't really want to like them too much as I might not have been very popular at home, that would have gone for the models too . To be honest I had forgotten about the 50-200mm Panasonic lens but I didn't see one on their stand. Interestingly they are also supposed to be doing 1.4x & 2x converters too. Bet that 2x wont fit the Olympus lenses!
