Yes, indeed! Nicholai finally came through, thanks largely to John Nanian - that great Rhode Islander among us. John graciously stepped in and reached out to Nicholai and made a heartfelt appeal that worked wonders.
We have a very slight change in the list for the Olympus. For now, it is the following:
Camera #2 - Olympus Stylus Epic
Raphael Plougastel, France
rst Oestringen, Germany
kraker Breda, The Netherlands
Steve Smith Isle of Wight, UK ← Camera now here.
M.A. Longmore Hartsdale, NY
Rick A Emporium, PA
Jim17x Worth, IL
zsas Crystal Lake, IL
ambaker Poplar Bluff, MO
toro_mike Englewood, CO
cdholden, Nashville, TN
I am certain that most if not all are still participating, including the next on the list - Ron (M.A. Longmore). I'll reach out to Jim17x and keep everyone posted.
BTW - John Nanian, who graciously brokered the deal with Nicholai to get the camera moving - has bowed out of the rest of this round. Makes me a little sad not to have one of his haunting lifescapes included, but we'll get him for the next round for sure.
