Re: Rumoured E-M1 ii launch next week

Ed, yep there should come a time for sane people to say that 'I really want that f.0025 multicoated ice cream cone'. But I can't afford it - but yes the max I'd pay would be say one arm. OK plus 10%.

Re: Rumoured E-M1 ii launch next week

I just received a 'newsletter' from Carmarthen Cameras, page 2 is 'intriguing' so I have pasted it below. Doesn't say exactly what will be on demo on Nov 2 but I have a hunch

I will not be in the market for the mk2 and its a two hour round trip to Carmarthen but I may just go all the same and satisfy my curiosity. I may even come back with a PEN-F

Simon

That sounds about right as it is AU$2295 downunder with one place giving 10% off.

Can't work out if he is holding a tripod or a hedge clipper minus shears. Certainly a sharp salesman (person). But Simon please reveal what you think Carmarthen are up to? Given I think it's 'near' Wales perhaps they are announcing the relief of Mafeking

Sorry but I cannot make 'head nor tail' of what you are saying

Re: Rumoured E-M1 ii launch next week

The Rumours site says it will be out for Christmas

http://www.43rumors.com/ft5-confirme...k-of-december/

As long as I get one for my oldest Nieces wedding in April I'll be happy

I think an event like that deserves an EM1 II and a 12-100 don't you :-)

Regards
Andy

I think my "stupid" level has gone up to £1850 . I have no will power.

I don't normally flag internet jokery, but given the relevance to this thread, I've broken my own rule here:

(don't think I've seen this on these forums yet?)

Given the inaccuracy on the price ("Price still hasnít been confirmed yet. There is only a general Olympus comment about the price being in the Fuji X-T2 territory."), I wonder how accurate the ship date is?
