    Are you going? Managed to bag myself a free ticket for Sunday. Hoping to go to a few lectures and maybe pick up a bargin.

    Focus on Imaging

    Hi,

    I'm going on Tuesday. Looking for a deal on a 70-200mm f1.8 and possibly the 24-70mm f1.8 as well.

    Was there today, not much in the way of deals to be honest. Canon are running a cash back offer for the uk/eu for the show duration then for the rest of the retailers 7th march to 31st may

    Didn't see any great prices on lenses or cameras. More expensive than the web. Some good deals on screens that looked tempting.

    The last few years you could get discounts on new and some good prices on refurbs - Sadly there's no Jacobs this year to drive the prices down.

    Is it true that Canon have been giving out information at FOI on an upcoming spring cashback offer starting March 7th?

    Do park cameras go along?

    They're my camera shop of choice

    Yes, see my first post

    No park, cameraworld, calumet and 1st digital (or something like that) we're the main sellers, lots of smaller retailers with bags memory cards etc, but not cameras

    Brill - Thanks.

    Gonna get myself a 60d while they're cheap - not interested in the 70d.

    f1.8 lenses

    Dude I only just saw this quote lol yep a 70-200mm f1.8 would be impressive :)

    I ended up getting a 24-70 f2.8 from the show. Pretty much the same price as I could've got online saved about 20 quid I think and got a 4 year warranty threw in. I ended up buying a second D800 body and the 70-200 glass online after the show.
