Not that I would have won, but as that's what I would have wished for (already having the Pen-F), I don't see any point now! Just have to keep saving through next year....
Oh, that rather dampens the mood. I wonder why they did that, are they so short of money?

I was afraid of that. It would have to be the Pen F for me then.

Not entirely sure. But there's a thread on Olympus UK page into which you can post your entry as a 'comment'

https://www.facebook.com/OlympusUK/p...1048977605381/

This link may take you to a 'black screen' version - click the X at top right corner to go to the post proper

Re: Olympus UK top of the shots 2016 - will you be entering?

Had it been possible, I would have opted to wait a year or two for the E-M5 Mk 3 (I assume there will be one eventually). As there seemed no way to enter without some sort of social media account it was all moot anyhow. Good luck to those who entered.

Well I got mine in before I went to work. Good job I checked as I thought the close was midnight tonight.

Well, I entered and asked Santa for an E-M1ii. As it appears the Elves has not made enough of them I guess my entry will be disqualified! Oh well, I doubt they'd have picked me anyhow...

OMG - how did you concentrate on taking the photograph?

Seriously, that's a classy portrait and an excellent entry. Good luck!
