I took Timmy the Greyhound for a long walk along the Fossdyke Canal. With it being so hot, Timmy had his cool collar on and we finished the day with an ice-cream.
The Saturday was The Photography Show at the NEC. For once I had nothing I wanted, except to try out the Hasselblad and Fuji medium format cameras, more on those in another post.
We caught a few seminars which were interesting and saw a few of the more famous names in photography. As you can see above Frank Doorhof was also there.
Our first visit was to the Olympus stand so that Chris could get his OM bodies cleaned and serviced free of charge.
I got the chance to have a play with a few ultra wides for the Leica M, the Robert White stand had the range from 10 MM upwards of Voiglander glass. If like me you like the odd extreme wide angle but do not shoot enough of that focal length to justify your own brand glass then the Voiglander is definitely the way to go.
Chris did buy a Olympus 300mm but I did not buy anything.
Fuji are also filling out there lens range fast for their medium format camera, it seems Hasselblad will have some catching up to do.
We have seen a number of number of interesting new lens and another classic re-release recently from Leica for the SL range and the M range. We now have a few reviews starting to appear. Apart from the classic lens, the one new lens that does interest me is the 75mm Noctilux-M. To be honest I cannot justify the price of the 75mm but it is an interesting lens.
