Focus on Imaging

Off to FOI tomorrow now I have my free entry pass. Time to write a shopping list - or at least a list of internet prices that I can compare against what is on offer there.

Re: Focus on Imaging

I went today and it was busy but much less crowded than usual for a Sunday. There seemed to be very few real special offers though I ordered a Camera at a good price.

Re: Focus on Imaging

Just got back from FOI.

For what I was looking for there did not seem to be many great deals to be had. Someone from Jacobs did tell me that some (all?) of the Sigma lenses they were selling had been subsidised by Sigma. This did seem to be true in at least one case as as the 30mm f1.4 Jacobs had was 3 less than the one I have just ordered from Onestop.

Re: Focus on Imaging

I went to-day Monday, I thought it was very busy! I did not buy anything there were no bargains to be had, I met a lot of friends who I had not seen for a long time, I felt quite uncomfortable in there it was so hot and there were long queues for drinks and refreshments, I did go to buy but in the end I just finished up browsing.

Re: Focus on Imaging

Charlotte, I ordered the Camera from Calumet but they were out of stock. However, the special show price was agreed and they claimed they would deliver the Camera this week. I will believe it when I see it but they have at least entered a contract so cannot now increase the price.

Re: Focus on Imaging

That's great Dave, I firmly believe the peace of mind re: price is definitely worth the wait Well let's face it, there is no choice but to wait for stock is there; all the dealers are in the same boat in that regard, and I'm sure they're all doing their best to catch up with back-orders for everyone's sake.

Re: Focus on Imaging

Yup went myself today with the intention of trying to get a Canon 100 f2.8 macro.

Came away with a great A1 print of a globe from Epsons stand and nothing else.

Only one stand had the lens I wanted and it was 80 more expensive than Onestop.

Got back to Manchester tired and knackered but I did enjoy the day.

Anyone wanting a bargain then get a years subscription to Amateur Photographer stand B43 and the are giving a large Lowepro Rucksack away for subscribing. The same bag was 100 on the Lowepro stand

Re: Focus on Imaging

Des, thanks for that reassurance. I have never dealt with them before so was taking a chance but at 216 cheaper than anyone else at the show, I could not miss the opportunity.

Re: Focus on Imaging

We seem to have a couple of threads on Focus,here's a duplicate of what I found yesterday
I purchased for a friend a Canon 450D complete with a 18-55 mm IS Lens for 399. B stock ex display with 12 months Canon UK warranty from Jacobs. The same camera but New Stock was 459.This only equates to 10 less than John Lewis at present.

For myself I bought 250 sheets of 300 gsm specialist photo paper.

It was quite crowded and hot. Some good totty on show for taking shots with your own camera using professional lighting. A particular good setup was a simulated "jungle" with painted tree trunks with the girl posing as if trying to force the tree trunks apart

The best bit was catching up with the latest technology and quizing the major manufacturers.
