If they are perfectly satisfied with what you produce, with what you've got, don't poke the bear. If they are not, start poking, and begin with your wallet. You may have to spend actual money for actual goods, and it is just about  to be actually the end of the financial year. Poke fast, if you are going to poke at all. If you need to spend to earn, spend now. b. Small enough? If you are going to do a holiday trip riding in anything smaller than a tank transporter, you'll need to think about size and weight.

There is an End-Of-Financial-Year sale email going out right now from Camera Electronic - you may be on the list that receives it. Normally I do not interfere with that section of the business or comment on the offers, but today another staff member pointed out that there is an exceptional good deal in there.

By all means - and you may find one of them in the same EOFY ad. Pass further down the...

We are perfectly safe. The danger of running out of Olympus E-PL5 cameras with 14-42 lenses has been averted. Supplies have arrived and the troops are shoring up the parapets with boxes of them.Actually, they are filling up the shop. Already we have lost a staff member behind a wall of boxes and all we can hear is a muffled voice asking for coffee.Members of the camera buying public - and their friends - are urged to come in and help us regain some control of the storeroom by buying a kit. There are also many many lenses as well, so if you have a spare pocket you can take a couple of those home too.The E-PL5 is the small hand version of the OM-D mirror-less cameras with all the goodies packed tight. The image quality is superb and the convenience of use is unbeatable. We are also offering the 45mm f:1.8 lens and the 14-150 lens as well on special deals so the portraitist or traveller is directly catered for.The E-PL5 kit with the 14-42 lens is going out...
