Each time I have been into Jessops to try and purchase an item they haven't had any stock, but tell me they can order it for me to collect tomorrow or a day when the deliveries come which is know good to me as I do not live near a store and my visit may be on an away day in a larger city. If I have to wait until tomorrow I may as well stop at home and order the item myself and probably get it cheaper anyway.
I know keeping stock ties up money but surely that is the risk a shop has to take or nothing will be sold. Spur of the moment purchases don't happen if the stock isn't there.I tried to purchase a DJi osmo action camera non in stock, I walked down the street to Argos and picked one up there! No Rotolights either, or Canon 5D MK4. They couldn't even show me a 70-200mm L Canon mk3 I dont know if they stock anything. Anyone else find this problem with Jessops? Not surprised if people cannot buy from the shop that the business is failing.

A CVA seems like a no brainer for companies with expensive rents. It seems to me to say to landlords - accept less rent or lose us entirely. Forcing the landlords into a lose everything or lose something scenario whilst lease contracts run to their expiry date.
With so many companies doing it to try and reduce losses its likely many more will also look to see if CVA's can benefit their business.

Until virtual web companies and overseas companies pay similar overheads to sell to a particular nations people then i'd expect physical stores to become evermore innovative to reduce their overheads.

Not interested - they didn't deliver on their proposals for ver 3 so what's to say 4 will be any better and now they are double dipping making ver 3 users pay to get ver 4.

Multiple framing options is a plus.
No EVF is a minus once you add the weight of the lenses.

Growing nicely as a range. Quality DX can largely be covered by FF lenses, but that canít happen with DX wideangle zoom. Opportunity here for Tokina to make a Z mount (and for others too) version of their classic 11-20/2.8.

To be fair, I have visited the lomography site and seen that the film can have smoother grain if developed by different chemicals. Worth testing dudler...
Just saying.

Attractive price.
Not so sure about the grain though.
Let's hope one of the film forefathers will use it here and tell us about it...

"ePHOTOzine gave the PEN E-PL8 a 'Highly Recommended' award" - true, but that was almost 3 years ago and it is currently on sale at many sites for a similar price and Jessops have it @ £399 complete with 2 lenses - the 14-42 EZ and 40-150mm R Lenses.
