It’s finally the day of the LCE Photo and Optics show and in less than 4 hours the show will start (it was 4 when when I created and posted this). I have already written quite a few posts about this over the last couple of weeks so please go and read a few of my more recent blog posts.
For those that don’t know I am calling this OM-D-Day as this is the day that I pickup my Olympus OM-D E-M1 camera and 12-40mm f2.8 lens kit. I am not sure exactly what the “show offer” will be but I am led to believe that it will be less than the £1699 that the E-M1 kit costs today. I will also get a free grip, a £150 cash-back and LCE now have an exclusive additional 3 year warranty on their OM-D cameras and kits which gives you a total of 5½ years.
The other Olympus part of the show for me is that I will finally get to play with the new 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens and 1.4x tele-converter as well as some of more “exotic” M.Zuiko glass such as the excellent 75mm f1.8 and the 12mm f1.8. I also can’t wait to see Damian McGillicuddy in action as he is doing 2 portrait shoots during the show; I have only seen him in YouTube videos.
Whatever you are looking forward to see at the show, more details can be found at the LCE website here.
