  3. I'm going to say maybe. I'm going to have my assistant look into hotel rooms and all that, see what's possible for me.

    Getting a hotel room in Düsseldorf is always a pain during major events. I would guess it is the same in Cologne. So better arrange well in advance or be prepared to stay in places further away.

    Another possibility is alway to fly in just for the day.

    I might consider spending the weekend in Bochum and travel from there? Always hoping for there not being any important swim meet where Sabine needs to be taken to, and also ... :er: ... hoping/fearing :shock: it won't be the VERY weekend when Florian moves out and to Greifswald!?!?! *gulp* That said, I must now say: I really don't know ... :pale:

    He will first need a place to be thrown into... Let's see when and how early that will show up.

    So who is going to be the official TPF insider at Photokina? :mrgreen:

    News of some Leica fast wide angle M-mount lenses (21 and 24 Summilux) and a new Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 just reached me.... wish I could be there to see them in person. I'm sure my bank account is happy that I can't be there. From the looks of it, its going to be a very interesting show this year from all parties including Sony, Olympus etc.. and not just the big two.

    I'd love to go.. one problem.. a few thousand miles too far... :grumpy:

    Unfortunately, the photo plus expo in New York City isn't as interesting...
