    Slight error – It is Canon CPS in Holland who sent out the invite to CPS platinum members.

    The meeting is in Roosendaal – actual location is to be sent if you RSVP

    The other page of the invite is in Dutch and on , where this invite image first appeared (it has one of my editing/attribution marks ;-) )

    There is also nothing connected with those 18MP specs (which I’d put as ‘unlikely’ BTW)
