Exclamation We're giving away an E-30!

** UPDATE - more details here!



Yes, we're giving an E-30 and Zuiko Digital 14-54mm f/2-8-3.5 II. (Not sure about the HLD-4 pictured above - but full details will be announced later).

The donation of this fabulous prize has been agreed in principle by Olympus UK, though we're still putting together the competition to decide the lucky new owner.

One thing I need to make clear is that this competition will be for UK and Ireland residents only. I know we have some very welcome overseas members, but for non-UK people I do hope to rustle up a great prize for our next competition over at Four Thirds User soon, so please understand that this site, here, was set up primarily for the UK and Ireland, for Olympus UK.

One thing that is sure, is that if you aren't an e-group site member, you won't be eligible, so if you have been thinking of signing up, now's the time!

More news as soon as I have it.

Ian

Ian,

Can you also confirm that all those members who have posted reasons why they don't want one in the last 48 hours will be 'in-eligible' too?

Well, I think the E-30 is a fantastic addition to the Olympus line-up and, if I win, it will be a fantastic addition to my camera bag!

What a great competition - and great publicity for this site!

Well said Garrie, and I wouldn't be too sorry if the prize ended up north of the border - wouldn't it make a nice wedding present for a nice couple?

But, as you say, good luck to everyone!
