    Re: anybody going to Photokina?

    Due to a fault of mine, I could not meet up with Kevin and Cam.

    I did not go to any of the stands. I passed through the Pana area. Everything m4/3rds was locked up in a glass display. I did make a neat snap of the 3D extravaganza that was going on. Pana = Video.

    Nikon had plastered "I am this" and "I am that" everywhere in yellow and black.
    I was not sure if it was photokina or nikokina when I entered the massive Koeln messe.

    I no longer use Nikon cameras. So.....

    Olympus stand did look a lot more friendly.

    I did not look for Leica or get to fondle the M9Ti.

    I did spend my time usefully meeting with some interesting folks and discussing UV and IR photography.

    ok Vivek

    btw., despite using their products I agree that the present Nikon campaign is enough to make one sick
    they really seem to underestimate the IQ ... of their customers

    Yeah, Steen.

    I have many respected photographers (also Nikon users) as friends. Yesterday, I saw quite a few folks walking out with a big shopping bag plastered with "I AM NIKON".

    It was a discomforting sight.

    To me, when a movement starts like this, it is time to shy away from any such slogans or logos, regardless of the quality of the products.

    ooh, Vivek! as a penance for jilting me, i might pick your brain about IR photography... that is, if i can find the filters somewhere...

    as for meeting, we'll just have to find some other gin joint
