So, any bargains at "Focus on Imaging 2008" ?

For those brave enough to take on the Sunday crowds at "Focus" , did you spot any bargains ? Any D300's going for half price by an chance or D-Lite kits at a steal ?

I managed to sneak in about half an hour before anyone else and found someone selling some Arca-Swiss type ballheads, they were bankrupt stock bought back and I got one for the princely sum of 20!!!

Absolute bargain.

Re: So, any bargains at "Focus on Imaging 2008" ?

I went today, it was a lot busier than last year! I managed to get some free stuff, sample paper, pens, a mug, a magazine, etc. Picked up a Sigma 10-20mm for 279 too

Dave, the D300's weren't half price, but they were under a grand - 999! I don't know about the D-Lite kits but on the Bowens stand there was a competition to win a lighting kit of some sort

No problems I've just remembered that there was also a competition to win a D300 (with a lens and few other things) on the Lexar stand

Yes but it will cost me 50 to go and get it

If I could go the Focus for the day I'd but one, but I'm on nights now - having swapped to make the Crew meet - so I'd have to rush up there 150 mile round trip, after I wake up and just get it then have to leave. Not worth it. I might just as well go to Jessop's where I can get one for 1043.













Mmmmmmmmmm
