Here are some pictures from earlier today. For the full analysis look below or click on the link at the right under Previous Posts. If there is something you'd like me see at Photokina and write about, just leave a comment on this post. And be sure to check out the full M8 hands-on write up from two days ago.

Hi there, could you please check out the Bron Paras? The dealer in India says that the fabric & spokes have been changed. Also Profoto has launched the New Giants which are apparently very close to the Bron Para quality. Could you please compare the two??
