Does any of this pertain to me a DSLR user? Like, are there going to be any new lens announcements for APS-C (or full frame)? Or is all the hype about a mirrorless system?
Its been mentioned several times - there is two new lenses appearing, possibly 3. For the SLR's.

Sadly, all I will be doing is going to the show. Leave home at 6am, collect friend in Berowra at 7.30 and depending on weather will either train from there, or drive right in. Either way its going to be a long day. Might take a compact with me but I won't be taking the good gear. I'll be carrying as little as possible in anticipation of "showbags" from some places (Adobe's, for example, are usually pretty good)

The CR Kennedy stall didn't have a model last time in 2009, but there was one at the Canon area:

Not sure if I'm telling people something they know already - but check out some retailers/vendors sites - some are offering free entry passes instead of the $20 at-the-door ... Apologies if this was already known to all...

The Pentax Q will be there too.

Yeah that's probably the one I heard about Pop

The PMA site itself also has the free tickets to print out. I just checked I still had mine - I printed them out back in March - eager much? lol.

Heheh yep. I just asked PentaxAustralia on twitter and they said they'll have both the Black and White Pentax Q's available on display (And yes, I know they already Tweeted the announcement but I was in a rush and had to ask directly )

Looking forward to it!

How come we haven't heard the announcement yet? Will that come Saturday?

I'm holding my breath that they'll be something good.

Both were on display, and that's where they stayed, on display, behind glass. Couldn't take them out to play with them or anything:
