Lincoln Photo and Optics Show 2014


The date for the “Lincoln Photo and Optics Show 2014” is getting nearer, in fact it’s 3 weeks away from today (on 5th November). As per the last few years the show is being held at the “Drill Hall” here in Lincoln only a short distance form the host’s (LCE) Silver Street store.

Apparently this is the 11th year that there has been a show, almost as long as I have lived in Lincoln. The first shows were held at “The Lawn” not far from the Lincoln Castle. Fortunately the last few years shows have been held at the Drill Hall and this is a far better and easier to get to location.

The show starts at 1PM and continues until 7PM and there is no entry fee; arrive early (after 1PM of course) if you want to grab yourself a bargain as there will be some exclusive show offers from LCE as well as some of the exhibitors who will be at the show, so far the list includes:

  • Canon – first public appearances for the 7D MKII
  • Olympus – Damian McGillicuddy will be there as will the new 40-150 f/2.8 PRO lens
  • Sony
  • Nikon
  • Panasonic – the new LX100 will be there as well as the GH4
  • Fuji – we might get to see some of the just announced lenses as well as the silver X-T1
  • Sigma – try the new 150-600mm lens
  • Manfrotto/Lastolite
  • Lowepro
