Yes, she is wearing OM-D lens cloths

And I can imagine the cue of guys waiting to use the lens cloth she's wearing to clean their lenses.

Haha, you wish... Model not included.

Sorry about delay getting lens cloths out, could use this as an excuse but that might be a fib...

That's a fantastic opportunity to photograph a beautiful model and be in with a chance of winning a great prize. Good luck to all who enter.

I suppose it's bad form to ask to borrow her lens cloth?

That will be, I guess, the pending Stylus XZ-10. "Only" a compact, maybe, but a stunning piece of technology in an incredibley small package. I'd absolutely love one!

Re: Photograph this model at Focus and win the next Olympus camera...

Balderdash.... was there yesterday but missed this post! Guess it was a last minute thing.... a heads up from Oly would have been nice....

Went to the stand, but there wasn't much there to see.... wanted to try the new m43 lenses but could only see the 45mm....

Also tried to buy the 75-300 II at Cameraworld.... sold out. Turned out to be a bit of a wasted journey.... too few retailers.... nothing m43 to see/play with.... Can't see me bothering next year

What's dangerous about it? Does it take your eye out if you look too closely?

Unfortunately I couldn't get too close with my EPL-1 + 50mm f2 combo.

OK, here is my sole effort. Not the lens cloth model but to one with the 'get too close and my bra will take your eye out' model

Olympus EPL-1 + 50mm f2 FD
