    Anyone else going to The Photography Show 2014 in Birmingham over the next few days?

    I've got tickets for tomorrow, but may well go another day depending on how good it is

    I certainly am. May see if I can get a good price on a D7100.

    I'll be there on Monday, though my ticket is for all 4 days ;) Prices no doubt won't be as good as they used to be at Focus (a few years back), but often you'll get extras for the same price.

    That said I'm not intending to spend any money, just looking at some light setups and hoping to catch up with a few people.

    Had a great day at the Photography Show today. Lots of stuff to look at, loads of great things to take pictures off, and lots learnt.

    Also brought myself a sigma 18-200 f3.5-6.3 DC

    A few of my pics from today below

    Where did you buy your lens and did you save anything?

    I spoke to the Sigma guys asuming i could buy direct from them, but after demoing a few lens' i decided on the 18-200 and the told me i had to go over to camera world to actually purchase. Saved about £2 over buying from amazon, so no real discount... Everywhere was advertisting show discount, but checking prices against online sellers as walking round it was maybe £5 savings tops, with most of the time being able to get stuff cheaper online

    I picked up a Nikon D7100 today, open boxed for only £525. RRP is around £839 (although Nikon are doing a £100 off spring cash back promotional offer), so saved around £200 which can go towards my glass fund.

    And, of course, you'll need some nice glass to go with that ;) Have fun!
