Cool Direct from the 2016 Photography Show!

Looking forward to seeing your photos here too but here are soon to get you started:









The Olympus stand is a good size but doesn't have a stage this year. The show itself has large stage facilities and that's where Olympus luminaries will be performing. As promised, the sensor cleaning crew are here

I think Ian's third photo is all the other people who want to look at the 300/4 first

The stand is quite close to the main entrance as well - a much better location than in previous shows.

That would have been the entire attendance at Focus on Imaging in the 90s.

Maybe a close second to the 300mm?

Re: Direct from the 2016 Photography Show!

I had a play with the red dot sight Graham but to be honest the show isn't really the best place to check it out. Talking to Andy at the show was really useful as he has one so maybe he will be able to post some real user experience. The 300mm was certainly impressive though, shame about the price. Again Andy is the man for a user review as he's got his already! I did also have a play with the Panny 100-400mm which is a nice lens too and a bit more affordable.

Nice images Ian, they capture the atmosphere nicely. Didn't take any myself this year. Not quite as busy as I remember last year was but still lively. Hope the jet lag wears off quickly Ian.
