      I'd love to, but we'll still be away.

        Is this launch rapidly turning into the worst kept secret ever? Even Olympus are so excited that they can hardly resist spilling the beans. Must be some camera!

            Hmm...I was only in SRS yesterday and they denied all knowledge of an upcoming Olympus Day. They said they would only be told when it was just before the day.....

            On a positive note, I don't go away until the 16th so the 14th is great for me!

              And did you come out without buying anything?

                They are probably subject to an Non Disclosure Agreement and didn't know that Olympus have plastered it all over facebook!

                Why not the 12th, in London?

                    Hi Chevvy,

                    So you can't wait just a little longer, until the 12th September or maybe even a little earlier? (11th September?) Think how you might regret it if Olympus do actually produce your perfect solution? And if they don't then you jump ship with no rerets!

                      I can make the 12th in London I figured Ian's meet up was different to the promotional days? But I plan to do both

                      Stephen, I came out with nothing but only because my credit card would have keeled over and died should I have tried to flex it

                      I wanted the 9-18mm but they talked me out of it saying the 12mm was a far better lens (and more expensive-ouch!). I also had a play with some Kenko extension tubes and a VF4 both of which I like very much Now I just need to find the money!

                        So did I, but the day before the new camera is expected to be paraded in stores? Some coincidence!

                          May be we should drag Ian into a bar on the 12th and ply him with lots of alcohol until he spills the beans

                              It looks like a little one and in September I will have missed half the birds in flight of August/September

                              there is no word of model or spec yet - so I shall sell my kit as it is now

                                I hope it works out well for you and that you get some great BIF pictures during the next few weeks. Have you decided yet what camera/lens combination you are getting?
