The Extremely Polite Scrum
Well, the last time I saw a crowd that thick around a product was at the Rottnest bakery when the fresh bread came out of the oven. The phrase " fight your way in " came to mind. I'll give our customers credit - they are a patient lot and they stood politely to hear Burke's exposition and to let other people have a go with the new camera and lenses*.
But there were a few twitching eyebrows. Olympus fans are a keen lot under the surface.
I managed to persuade one of them to be a hand model for the new device, and noted as well a 12-100mm lens that looks to be the superzoom of choice. But I cannot say what the camera felt like in the hand - there were too many more enthusiasts ready to leap!
Note that Olympus have had an additive light setting in their processor that is particularly suited to dusk and night-time shots. I hope to try it out.
* They might have been there just to see Burke. He may be a cult star. I left before the autograph books came out.
