Re: E-group members at the show!

Meeting everyone was the highlight of the day and I am really glad to have had a long chat with Ed who came over from the Emerald Isle for the day. Judging by the time he arrived (early), his plane must have had a tail wind. Good to catch up with Bruce who I last saw at the Bristol Balloon Festival (with Brian Mosley) in about 2008 in the days of the Olympus UK Safari Group. Glad to get the 25mm f1.8 but after seeing that lots had bought the 75-300, I was wishing I could have got that too, to eventually replace my 50-200 and put me even more on the m43rds path. Am I right in assuming that the 50 Oly cashback was on everything over 300 or just camera combos? If it was on lenses too, maybe the 75-300 or the 17mm might have been better buys. One day......
All in all a good day and one of my photography club members got the EM5 with 12-50 and got the 45mm and two part grip free, plus 50 cashback. Bargain! She is now the 5th Oly m43rds user in my club when 6 months or so ago I was the only one. Times, they are a-changing!

E-M1 Mk2, Pen F, HLD-9, 17, 25, 45, 60 macro, 12-40 Pro, 40-150 Pro, 12-50, 40-150, 75-300, MC-14, MMF-3 (all micro 4/3rds), 7-14 (4/3rds), 50, 135 (OM), GoPro Hero 3, Novo/Giottos/ Manfrotto supports. Lowepro, Tamrac, Manfrotto, and Billingham bags.
