    [Completed] 060813 - San Francisco / Bay Area meetup

    Hi everyone,

    I know I'm new to the site but I would love to organize a photo walk down here in the Bay Are.
    I'm thinking we meet up at Union Square downtown San Francisco and go from there.
    As far as dates I think a month from now is a good time to make sure everyone can attend (I'll also be travelling until the end of May as of next week so that works for me too).

    What do you think? Would anyone be interested?

    Final date: Saturday June 8th at Union Square Downtown SF at 12:00PM

    So far we have the following people confirmed:
    Mijo
    ranxoren
    Nam-in-Sonoma

    Mijo and I have agreed to let participants try out our gear but you break it you replace it :)

    I'd be interested in meeting other M43 users in the Bay as well. Definitely post details as the time nears. :)

    I'll be out-of-town on June 8th-9th weekend. If you're planning on future dates in July, count me in and you might want to create Micro Four-Thirds Bay Area Meetup at Find Meetup groups near you - Meetup website. It is very good and I've attended selected meetup event(s) with friends around Bay Area such as Golden Gate Bridge or Bay Bridge at night opportunity.

    Thanks for the tip!
    Maybe we can do the following weekend. I'll put up a poll for tentative dates :)

    I'll also setup a meetup group to your point

    Warriors are leading hopefully we win the whole game!!
    Why are you selling your gear and moving away from M43 — if I may ask — ?

    Just added a poll to the top of the thread.
    Everyone please go ahead and select the date(s) that work for you.
    I have enabled multi-selection so hopefully we can find something that works for everyone!

    Looking forward to it :)

    ps: since people on this thread are from the Bay Area, I figure I could share the below in case you don't check the Buy/Sell forum:
    I am looking to trade my Oly 12-50mm for a Rokinon 7.5mm or sell for $220 if anyone is interested:

    I voted for June 8th since Father's day weekend is the following weekend and there's a good chance I'll have to visit the in laws that weekend.

    If anyone is interested I have the OMD leather case (the full two part case made by Oly), which I've only used once, that I'm thinking about selling. I can bring it to the meet up, if any one wants to check it out just respond to this thread or PM me.

    You should probably just bring it regardless someone may want it after seeing it :)

    Amazon Prime FTW :)

    ps: letting my Oly 12-50mm go for $200 (with UV Filter, Fisheye adapter, and OEM Hood) for anyone interested in the Bay Area as I would love to be able to order the Rokinon fisheye before my trip this weekend.
