Are we there yet?


... Are we there yet?

It comes every year, FOCUS on Imaging 2011 is nearly here. My ticket duly arrived this week, by magic carpet. I have been going so long (10 years eeek!) that I start to recognise some of the people there. Is that sad?

Last year I went bonkers and bought a very very tasty long lens. There are some extremely good prices so it's a good opportunity to keep costs down when replacing gear. I have sold on some of my old gear (a spare SLR body, almost unused - less than 1000 shutter operations, has a new owner now). I think the flagship compact G12 would be a very good addition to my bag as sometimes to pull a pavement splitting body and lens out - is rude at beast or such a bad idea your person is threatened.

With a little planning the day can be extremely productive. I will be spending some time working out which seminars will be on my list this year.
