Re: Official E-M1II presentation day on November 2

I'm going to sunny Spain a couple of days after this to spend some time with the E-M1 ii

Ian

PS It's not all sweetness and light; I have to be at Gatwick for something like 5AM and back home the following day.

Ian,
At least you're unlikely to experience weather as bad as that experienced by the reviewers who Olympus recently took to Iceland

Unless Olympus had specifically chosen a location in the cold and dark, devoid of wildlife & moving objects so that the reviewers couldn't tryout the C-AF or DR, it's hard to imagine why Iceland in October was an appropriate venue!
