OMG! We have the ZD 9-18mm f4-f5.6...
Sep 18, 2008

Hello everyone,

as you may know, the Olympus Safari Group is attracting so many serious photographers, who appreciate the value of shooting with Olympus DSLRs that Olympus have begun to have a high degree of trust in our opinion - we have a number of extremely exciting projects in progress.

It is due to this trust, that Olympus have supplied us with the first ZD 9-18mm f4-f5.6 lens, with a view to having our members give their own opinion of its' use in the real world!

I will of course try to answer any questions here - and get some samples up today, but it is more important that you get a chance to share your opinion with your peers... and luckily, we have an event pre-planned for this very occasion!

Here are the details from Tim...

The next Olympus UK Photo Safari Group mini-event in the London area will be this weekend, taking advantage of the Open House London weekend to visit some of London's buildings that are normally closed to the public.
On Saturday, we will visit the City of London, taking in the following:

  • Broadgate Estate - normally has a no photography policy, so it's a good chance to get some shots of some landmark buildings and public art in the Square Mile

  • Spittalfields Market & Christ Church Spittalfields

  • Andaz Hotel (formerly the Great Eastern)

  • former Stock Exchange building & tower

  • Bank of England

  • Guildhall

  • Vintners Hall

  • Lloyds of London

  • Leadenhall Market

ending up back at Liverpool Street Station. We will meet here at 10:00:

On Sunday, we will go to Crossness Pumping Station, meeting at Abbey Wood station at 12:00:
