Re: Anyone interested in a London after work meet in the spring?

I would like to say a Huge Thank You to Jon for arranging a wonderful evening. It was so worth travailing down from Northampton to be there and it was great to meet so many friendly people. (this is the most friendliest forum ever) Sorry I missed you at the end but I had to run to catch my Train.

Best regards to you all

Re: Anyone interested in a London after work meet in the spring?

Great evening. Thanks for arranging it Jon. Sorry we lost the rest of you before your final stop. Haven't really had a chance to look at the pics properly yet. Graham I thought Pia was wonderful and the mix of Finnish and Moroccan gives her a very exotic look, will send any good shots when I get myself sorted out. Jim.

What a great evening!

Many thanks indeed to Jon for superb organization and planning, to Pia for looking so good in the evening light, and to Ian for the short loan of the 45mm f1.8.

It was really good to meet in person those I did (especially Bill - I hope the colour's come back to your fingers now!) and apologies to those I didn't have time to talk to.

We must keep on doing this

Re: Anyone interested in a London after work meet in the spring?

I don't know if etiquette is for us to post links on meetup announcement threads, but here's link to my gallery with a few quick tweaks:

http://e-group.uk.net/gallery/showgallery.php/cat/1426

This was my first proper outing with the E-M5. I really enjoyed the handling, and I can clearly see the improved raw noise performance and wider dynamic range over the E-PL2. I was on auto-ISO, limited to 3200.

The focussing was fun - I set it on continuous, tracking, activated by F1: it worked well with the 40-150 (e.g. the cyclist) but I had fewer successes with the 45. This may be down to my unfamiliarity with both lens and camera, but I was using a wider aperture with the prime, so maybe that had an influence.

Glad everyone enjoyed themselves and thanks to everyone for coming along. I was amazed to see so many people turn up! Looking forward to seeing the photos over the weekend (as long as there aren't any more of me. Ahem, Mark!).

Cheers,

Jon

Thanks from here too. A most enjoyable evening and I am trying to sort out budget to hire Jon as lighting engineer.

Ciao ... John

Re: Anyone interested in a London after work meet in the spring?

Wow, cheers Jon for suggesting and sorting this event, it was really great to meet everyone and there was a fantastic buzz throughout.
I got separated at the end so didn't get to say goodbye to most people... so I guess we'll just have to do it all again maybe once a month in the summer?
And BTW how many Jon/John's were there?
I had a fantastic time even the ride in and out was good fun on my piaggio MP3 250, everyone was very friendly, so a belated goodnight if I missed you and hope to meet you all again soon - best regards Cliff
