I'm going simply to heckle Will Cheung on the Nikon stand Wink

Only thing I am possibly in the market for is the Nikon 70-200. I sold mine and now I miss it Sad However, prices have dropped across the internet, so doubt there will be any bargains on that one.

Other than that possibly some paper, and some larger memory cards to cope with the video capability of the D300s.

Intending to go Monday for heckling purposes and possibly Wednesday for bargains Grin

Im going on the Tuesday, Im looking at getting a D700, 24 -70mm and possible a 20mm prime. But like you said depends on prices!

Oh and of course to meet people and get bought a drink by Pete (or Tj or Will - I'm not choosy) Wink

I plan to be there on the Monday - there's been a meeting wotsit set up in the meeting wotsit page...... here

I hope not to spend a coin since I'm a bit skint at the moment but will doubtless manage to find something I can't live without

I'll buy you a coffee Alison Smile

Something weird here, new forums has me as a member for 8 years, but old pages only 7. 7 is correct until Tuesday - new forum is a time zone of its own Wink

Cheers - I'll be the one with a bag on her head - or an appropriate EPZ badge around my neck Smile

I'm in my own time zone too - never know what day it is Smile I'm only down for 4 years which is in fact correct - 5 in May - but it feels as though I've been around far longer than that!

I am hoping to be at Focus on Sunday, on the Disabled Photographers Stand. We tend to have lots of "goodies" mostly film systems, come along and see.

I'll be there on Monday, intending to make a couple of purchases and get a shot of Will Cheung confronting hecklers on the Nikon stand.

As I only live fifteen minutes up the road I may get the bus to save on the outrageous 8 parking fine, sorry parking FEE.

(Milk with no sugar for me please Cheryl) Wink

Don't know how true this is, but I've been told that if you use a car park for the camping show, and are prepared to walk to the halls, parking is free!

Which show is this Cathal? There's nothing on the NEC website. Would be interesting though if it is.

The only one I can see that comes close to that is the Times's travel show, but guess there could be some smaller shows on in one of the other halls.

Update from across three forum topics and the members meeting on who is going:

Sunday 7th: EPZ team?, Irishman, ensign
Monday 8th: EPZ team, ade_mcfade, Cattyal, Big Bri, csurry, john64 & Myself
Tuesday 9th: EPZ team? f8, Dominic5749
Wednesday 10th: xstevex, Britman, csurry?

NEC cottoned on to this way of bypassing parking fees a long time ago - all shows on at the same time will be charging the same fee 8! Sad

I'll be there on Monday, no doubt succumbing to the temptation to buy things. Smile
