Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

Are any of you going on the Sunday?
I was going to have my EM1.1 cleaned but looking at it, there is corrosion starting to appear in places like the toggle switch at the rear. Hmmmm.......do you think they will give me a spanking new 1.2????

How can you Make me grumpy when that is my normal state anyway. The only thing that varies is the magnitude.

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

I have not been to the NEC in recent times (decades since I attended an electronics trade show) and not ever to the photography show. I have this picture in my mind of middle age overweight people with cameras and gadget bags slug around themselves taking pointless photos of others.
How close is this charicature?

See GH, you're not the grumpiest!

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

Just hope the runway is clear.
Hec I saw you smile at the show two years ago when you heard about my lack of a wallet so will be working to keep you in your normal state.

Worry not have wallet packed and been to the bank to get English notes as shops do not seem to like our notes over there.
Just need to bring my bag as everything needed will be in it!

Have also checked that I am going to the correct airport.

As for middle aged men; possibility it is pensioners walking round with their cameras on show, some even with large lenses! As for overweight that just supplies a platform to rest the camera on.

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

On my way home - sadly didn't bump into anyone from the e-group this time. OM-D E-M1 Mrk II is £1249 with a year's Pro Service subscription; no other obvious benefits.

Internet access was absolutely atrocious all day, hence the late communication. Neither the NEC WiFi nor my 4G (BT/EE) mobile broadband worked properly, sigh. This IS 2018, isn't it?

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

I've posted a gallery of shots of show prices (all makes, not just Olympus) at dpnow.com:

http://dpnow.com/the-photography-show-starts-today/

I see there is a price tag showing £1299 for the E-M1 Mark II but i'm sure that is wrong, it should be £1249.

Re: Photography Show NEC 17-20 March 2018

Is £1649.00 for the 300mm f4 a new lowest price from an approved UK dealer?

Yes: Iíve been following this for a while out of interest. SRS has had it at £1849 for a while, but thatís as low as itís been for ages.
I got mine at the show last year for £1699 from Calumet, and no one else there had it below £1899.
