OMD E-M1 II in Dublin!!

Contacted today to let me know Conn's Cameras in Dublin will have an Olympus day with the OMD E-M 1 mk2 on show on 24th November, 250 mile round trip but I think will go down to get hands on and meet Chris who I have e mailed and spoken to on the phone but never met.

Did that on Monday in Colchester. See my post is the Announcements section for my thoughts.

Chris is pleasant chap and the camera is a beauty so be warned that resistance is useless as the Vogon said whilst throwing Arthur and Ford out of the airlock of the Vogon Constructer ship.

Re: OMD M-E 1 in Dublin!!

I wonder what an OMD M-E1 mk2 is? Is that a lot different to the OM-D E-M1 Mk II?

Re: OMD M-E 1 in Dublin!!

When in Rome do as the Romans when in Ireland do your own thing its 1 key for the number 2 instead of three keys for II.

Caps lock and i twice!

When you say / think mark two / mark II / Mk 2 / mkII does your mind envisage the symbol 2 or II ?


Another case of down side up OR upside down. The end result is the same?

Sure Ed. When in Ireland we'll call it OM-D E-M1 Mk 2 then (& not OMD M-E 1 Mk 2).

Re: OMD E-M1 II in Dublin!!

We wouldn't gang up on you Ed & understand since our son in-law is similar. He IS tall though as we look up to him.
Take care mate & hope you get to enjoy this new E-M1 Mark II camera. I'm hoping & dreaming that one day I might too, but I've just blown my budget for a while with a purchase of the 40-150 Pro lens with MC14 because my 50-200 SWD lens developed a fault & the new lens was on a good sale.
