Re: Possible mini meet in Greenwich?

Sorry - can't make it (it's the Britten Centenary weekend in Aldeburgh, so we'll be walking across misty, autumnal marshland with friends between concerts - I'll certainly be taking the M1!)

Re: Possible mini meet in Greenwich?

Hi Guys
You probably have a few favourite spots in Greenwich to explore / re-visit, but I will happily suggest a route starting and finishing at our premises with a meeting point midway, say, for a sandwich lunch. We could arrive from 10:00 for coffee, set off 10:30, lunch stop @ 1:00 and continue after if not too cold! Location and travel details to follow if you are interested?

Sounds good to me, Norman. 10AM it will be.

Hopefully I will have an E-M1 (a couple due to arrive at the office tomorrow).

Re: Possible mini meet in Greenwich?

So kind of you to bring me a gift!

Members will be welcome at the following address:-
Linear House, Peyton Place, Greenwich, London SE10 8RS.
The most convenient station is Greenwich, either SouthEastern or DLR.
Public Transport is seriously recommended as car parking charges are expensive and apply 7 days per week in Greenwich!

Would be good to gauge how many people might be coming?

Re: Possible mini meet in Greenwich?

My E-M1 arrived earlier this week and I didn't have time to test it properly - this might be a perfect time to do so, so count me in ;-)

Re: Possible mini meet in Greenwich?

I now have TWO E-M1s but no 12-40 yet, sorry. Will bring the extra E-M1 if anyone needs to try it out?

well I've found Greenwich on the map, and established that I can get there via London Bridge........just the small matter of being expected in Hastings Sunday, so I'm only a 'possible' at this stage.

Re: Possible mini meet in Greenwich?

London Bridge to Greenwich via SouthEastern rail is 2 stops on a weekday (Deptford, Greenwich) but might be several more stops at a W/E.
Try the travel guide for alternative routes.

Re: Possible mini meet in Greenwich?

Looking forward to this - are there any lenses or accessories anyone would like me to bring. Sadly I don't currently have a 12-40 or HLD-7. But I do have most other items in the cupboard. I will probably be using a 12-60SWD on my E-M1 mainly.

Re: Possible mini meet in Greenwich?

Please can you bring the 17mm f/1.8 along. I've played with it in studios, but using it outside, may well sway me towards getting one.

Thanks

Sorry, feeling a bit under the weather so it is unlikely I will make it, but I will see how I feel later today. Jim

thank you Norman - LB is my first stop on the way in so I suspect it will be more about planning than alternatives (I hope); although right now I'm still stuck with Hastings.....

Having checked timetables it's still pretty much 10 mins every 12 mins
