This date is winter, not spring 2016 ...

But no prob, after CP+, you can easily start another countdown for Photokina

Is there a real reason for this thread?

Are people so bored that they need some place to post something?

Is Adam paying off someone to keep volume up (cheaper than his running some dumb contest?

That thread is based on old news. The latest one is that FF will not appear until CP+ 2016, which is Feb 25-28, 2016.
