IFA 2013 kicked off on September 6, 2013 in Berlin, Germany and Panasonic has expanded its product line-up for the European market with an even wider range of products in the audio-visual and home appliances categories. Better yet, Panasonic has increased the areas where visitors can experience and try for themselves the newest products and services.
Canon is now allowing its DSLR users to try out popular Canon lenses before purchasing them in the newly launched Canon Lens "Try and Buy" Programme. The programme, which is the first of its kind in Singapore*1 for a camera brand, will be starting from 28 March. For a nominal fee, interested users will get up to two full days to try out their lenses of choice.
Continuing to push the boundaries, Panasonic is pleased to offer a ‘Try Before You Buy’ service for the multiple award winning LUMIX DMC-GH3 with 12-35mm lens. This ingenious service allows customers to borrow the GH3 kit for 48 hours (excluding delivery and collection time) from a number of retailers with no obligation to purchase. A real plus for Panasonic customers, this opportunity allows them to explore and try the camera in their own setting before deciding to purchase.

Maybe last year I was the only girl in Tokyo without pointy shoes and this year I am the only girl I know with flower-patterned sunglasses, but at least I follow my heart!
