Re: New Top Specification OMD coming?

I found out about Southampton by contacting Olympus UK via their Facebook page

Re: New Top Specification OMD coming?

I remember seeing a list of places and dates a couple of weeks ago. May have even been on here.

This was what was showing on the Olympus UK facebook page, under the initial list of locations on 29th August

Just clever modern marketing really. There has been nothing official from Olympus about the new EM1.....just leaked information, photo's and a video!

Not all the staff at S'ton LCE knew anything about it either, just that the Oly rep would be there for an "Olympus" day! The chap with the long beard did know quite a lot about the EM1 but nothing about the exact spec!

I suppose this is hardly surprising as Olympus is expected to officially announce the new camera on 10th September in advance of their Olympus days. So we will have to wait until then to get the full spec, UK prices etc.

This rang alarm bells, as I remember the scarce availability of the OMD EM5 for the first few months following it's launch and spare batteries for very much longer.

Recently however camera companies have learned that advance market anticipation requires immediate satisfaction and cameras have been in stock to meet the pent-up demand. Even Leica have at last learned that and although cocking up their pre launch latest camera marketing campaign , they did have the cameras on dealers shelves on launch day.

Fingers crossed!

Re: New Top Specification OMD coming?

I'm just hoping that I make enough money from our exhibition that I will be able to buy it without "the boss" making enquiring noises (that's assuming it lives up to the hype of course )

I find it rather alarming that Olympus sponsor this website ... and this thread has 7,000 views ...

... and other Tog websites keep sending me emails about NEW CAMERAS from Nikon and Canon and Fuji etc., in fact, many more these last two weeks ...


BUT Oly do not !

... Perhaps Olympus do not KNOW LOYALTY EVEN WHEN ITS SLAPPING THEM IN THE FACE

I found out via the Olympus news update/tease email which you have to sign up to. That linked to the Olympus Facebook which had the details of what dealers are having Olympus events.

I do agree it does seem all very secret squirrel but I suspect that is deliberate ala Apple and iPhone releases. It's designed to create a great air of expectation, excitement and mystery.

Once the official announcement is made (10th ????? ) I'm sure we will be bombarded from all sides.

I liked the fact that I was invited to sign up for more information if I wanted (which I did) rather than being bombarded with unsolicited e-mail marketing shots

Re: New Top Specification OMD coming?

Ah.. perhaps I should sign up. I would have thought being on their mailing list and getting the online magazine thing should have been sufficient.

Regardless of whether there will be a new camera or not, surely it pays for camera stores and manufactures to publisise event days when a rep will be in store to answer questions.

I don't do "facebook" but did follow the link given by Brian and then navigated my way to the Premier Dealer Events page. Southampton is not listed and neither is anywhere I can get too. Can't get to Ian's 12th Sept thing either.

Re: New Top Specification OMD coming?

SRS open day 14th Sept. What do they mean lots of interesting stuff to play with? Lots of EM-1's? Or is there more we don't know about? With the EM-5 release they only had one of each camera that I saw, (EM5, PL5, and the mini)..... Food for thought.
