    I landed in Frankfurt and took their express train to Cologne for the exhibition, it about 1 hr, did not stay in Frankfurt, weather is cool - 10 + to lower 20+ Deg. in Germany now

    I saw the new Canon 6D and manage to hand on for a quick look. feel sighlty heavier than 7D and it designs is pretty like it as well. some new features like wifi and HD video which is design on the camera for "quick activiation" - did not get to test it and see how it works. Personally , i bit disappoint on the spec. for 11 AF points. On Nikon, did not see V2 , saw that they have J2.

    I realised that there is D800E - sorry not a Nikon fan "at the moment" so I am not sure what the different with D800.

    By the way, that shop put the Nikon D600 on sales show that they are running promo for Photokina at Euro 1799 - body only.

    Walked over the print section and realise many manufacturers working on high end commerical inkjet system and dye dublimation technology to competing the current chemical/silver halide solution.

    That all for today.

    D600 about 20% cheaper!?

    Hi, no worry on the D600 price, I saw that the normal price is Euro 21xx but for Photokina they are promoting Euro 1799, do not forget that their VAT(GST) is about 19% here.

    Well, if have time I will check on Nex 6 . I should be looking around for camera bags and lighting today.

    I have photos on the Photokina , not on the new camera models but I am not sure how to upload in CS.

    Yup but in the ‚1799 the 19% VAT are already included. You should buy one tax free.

    no worry, I know him.! I already inform him it cost about S$1000 for the 600EX-RT. I went back to the shop to buy a " sport cap" something I alway do when I visit a new country. there is a correction - the price of the Nikon D600 is Euro 1997(include VAT) but I can claim about 12% back at the airport. the guy told me there is 1 yr "International" warranty. But I am not a Nikon fan as I will have a few lens to clear if I were to switch camp.

    Sorry "struck" in meeting today and only have time to see the print areas, no time for Sony. I will try tomorrow.
