Olympus Image Space Event next week in London

I have had an invite to an event at Image Space in London next Wednesday through Olympus Magazine. I think that is the day that the new PEN F is launched. There are three two hour slots (12-2, 3-5, and 6-8) and I have booked the middle one which will allow me some time a do some photography between arriving at Paddington on the train, and the event itself.
Haven't been to London for a couple of years so it will be a nice day out and a chance to look at the PEN F, which IMO looks a cracker. Apparently there will be other stuff to play with (maybe the 300mm f4 ).
Has anybody else had the invite and more importantly are you going, and to which time slot?

I got the invite and think I deserve a day off work so I've booked into the 3pm session too.

Re: Olympus Image Space Event next week in London

I got the invite too, but I might pass on it because of the flight costs etc (& the time to get there).

Re: Olympus Image Space Event next week in London

Booked on the first session (12.00-2.00pm), aiming to get into London Bridge at 11:00 and amble along the Thames embankement taking pictures. Not sure if they will chuck us out at 2pm or if that is the last admission time on the early ticket, either way I will need to be on the move at 2:30pm. I'll be the idiot wearingf the daffodil if I remember.

Re: Olympus Image Space Event next week in London

I've booked the 12pm to 2pm one as well so hope to see some of you there. I shall be coming into Fenchurch Street station. I am hoping that they will have the 300mm F4 and faster wide angle primes as well? Unfortunately I cant hang about afterwards as I have to get back to take grandson to swimming lessons.

Re: Olympus Image Space Event next week in London

I think there might be a bit of a queue if they only have one 300mm to try!
