I was in a Bic Camera a few days ago and I was carrying my Olympus E-M10II + 25mm f1.8. Always lots of stuff out to look at and play with. I took the 25mm off and mounted the new Olympus 8mm f1.8 fisheye and took a photo inside of the store. I forgot and left the electronic shutter turned on, but I don't notice any banding even though the store had fluorescent lights.

Cool picture, Henry. Really glad that they don't have places like that around here. It would be bad for my credit card! ;)
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

I was stunned when we visited one. I have never seen such a big selection of kit.
In place of the usual half a dozen tripods there was a section of floor approx 4m x 4m just covered in every conceivable make and model plus perhaps 30-40 mono pods. Just amazing. I don't think there was anything they didn't have. Each camera make had at least 1 or 2 of each (every) model they had so you could try every single camera.
My only local camera shop (Jessops) had a Sony A58 and a single A7 model. Canon had a 7D plus 2 smaller models and Nikon a D7100 and D3200. There was a small scattering of Olympus and Fuji.
If the above kit is sold, only an A77II and Tamron 16-300 left sadly. Sony cannot supply what I want so rightly or wrongly I've branched out to someone who does and I'm very happy.
