Woburn day April 26th being organised at FTU
 
John Perriment (aka Zuiko here) is masterminding a Four Thirds User photographers meet for Saturday, 26th April - a month from now just about.

If anyone is interested, please have a look at the thread on the subject there:

Geography was never my best subject, so just to clarify, this is Woburn Abbey near Milton Keynes?

I had initially thought we'd try to get down and have a family day out, but a little search in google maps yields a long journey for me I'm afraid. Would love to attend, especially with all the great folk here and on FTU, but though I am not saying a definitive 'no' at the moment, it's currently not looking likely for me, sorry.

Hope you all have a great day though.

Yes, I believe so. It's not far for me, but I do understand it will be quite a distance for some.

I'd like to think about doing some dates both further west and north. I'm actually venturing to Keswick (lake district) with some pals from DPNow next Tuesday for a couple of days. If this is close for you and you'd like to join in, just let me know.

Milton Keynes is about 100 miles from where I live. This is what I consider drivable on a weekend.

I will discuss it with the wife, and see if she is up for it(She loves going out so this won’t be much of a problem).

I live in north Wiltshire, and assuming the wife wants to go, I have two spare seats in the car. I don't mind picking up a couple of passengers if they are local to me.

Thanks - a very kind offer *chr

Looking forward to meeting you John. Seems to me you have quite a comprehensive kit yourself which I'm sure many others would like to see. The only things different that I can bring to the party are four manual focus legacy lenses:-

50mm f1.8 Zuiko

90mm f2.5 Elicar 1:1 macro

135mm f4 Jupiter

300mm f4.5 Nikkor

Plus a R72 filter, if anyone wants to try infra-red effect B & W.

In terms of out of the ordinary lenses, I can bring a 90-250 f/2.8. I also have a 50mm macro, 12-60, 11-22, 50-200 (old version), EC-14 converter, plus various kit lenses. I can probably borrow some other lenses from Olympus for the day.

I have a Clubman 28mm F2.8 Macro OM and Tokina 28-70mm F3.5-4.5 OM lens. Both have 4/3rds to OM rings.

If anyone want to try these, I can bring them.

Both the wife and I are looking forward to visiting the zoo.

I can confirm I can bring the 14-35 f/2 SWD along, and I forgot to mention the E-420 and pancake lens. I've asked for the new 50-200SWD and either a 7-14 or 8mm fisheye or both from Olympus :)

To protect my poor back, I will naturally have to spread the load by asking attendees to carry these lenses for me :D

I hope so, I'm really looking forward to seeing that tropical shirt, might make a nice close-up abstract shot. I'll reserve judgement on the shorts!

Yep - less than 24 hours to go and the weather is looking ace :)

Any more late interest in joining the group?

I will be definitely bringing these lenses for you all to try:

18-180
7-14
8mm fisheye
90-250 f/2.0
50-200 SWD
12-60 SWD
50mm macro
14-35 f/2.0
70-300
EC-20 2x converter
EC-14 1.4x converter

I believe someone who owns a 14-150 Panasonic Leica will be bringing this interesting lens.

See you all tomorrow!

Ian
