Re: What will you be doing/buying at this year's Photography Show?

My wife says I have enough gear so the EM1.2 will be out of the question .
It will probably be accessories for me and magazines. I have too many bags.......so my wife says .
Affinity Photo will be there so I will drop in on them for a chat and maybe pick up the Workbook.
I will try and catch R. Cleveland Aaron's talk on the Olympus stage on Sunday.

Mark,

I'm not going to the show this year, but if you decide you'd like a Peak Design 30L in charcoal, hold off and pm me .... I have one 'as new' I'm sure we can come to some arrangement on!

I liked the look of it, and it's top quality, but it didn't work out for me in practice, purely a matter of personal taste. If you think it works for you ... let me know and we'll talk.

Margaret

Hi Margaret,
Great: I have some specific needs about practicalities (especially which Oly kit will fit, comfort, and carry-on size).
As you suggest, if it looks positive Iíll be in touch.

The G5x looks nice too. Might go and look at both of them.

The Q is lovely, but it's a lot of money and it doesn't have a tiltable screen. It's also probably bigger than the Pen-F and TBH, with the 17/1.8 or Panasonic 15/1.7 fitted, the Pen gets pretty close. I'm not sure the Q would add significantly more. Paying that much when there are still things missing (from my POV) doesn't sit easily.
I'll probably have my X70 at the show on the Monday and you'd be welcome to borrow it for a while (I'm also there on the Tuesday): bring a card if that would work. I use the Capture One raw processor rather than Lr, so Adobe X-trans incompetence isn't an issue for me! The raws are great, and it always amazes me to get such quality out of a titchy camera.

I owned an X100T before, and it's significantly bigger and heavier: I'd stick with a Pen-F or M5ii and either of those primes or the 12-32, if I were you. No tilt screen (which is also true of the X100F).

As I've said before, if Oly would just bring out a m4/3-sensored version of the XZ2, with a bit less good IBIS and CAF than the E-M1ii, I'd buy it in a flash. I'd be delighted if it had a 28 - 35mm fast prime and was weather sealed, but I'd be content with a collapsing limited zoom just so long as it was no thicker than the X70 and had a tilting touch screen. I'd prefer no VF (or optional VF4) if it meant it was really small.

That's very kind of you Mark - I may take you up on it!

Lee has a stand but they are not selling to punters. Instead, they have a guide to where their dealers are in the hall.
