Sigma had a huge booth, though most of it was a closed-off business lounge. They did give photographers the opportunity to try out most of their lenses. I managed to 'steal' a pen here...

Like Hans said before, one of the biggest growing markets currently seems to be photobooks. There were lots of photobooks at Photokina, but this one was without a doubt the biggest one.

Photobuch XXL was a sponsorproject for the 'Wir helfen' association, which supports local charities and projects in Cologne.

Broncolor had some pretty big reflectors and softboxes on its booth. Up close and personal, that makes quite a lot of light.

Early sunday morning, this magician Danny Ocean is already working his crowd. You know it's a trick, but no matter how hard you look you can't find out how the trick works... I am not too sure what it has to do with photography, but it was highly enjoyable to watch this guy work for a couple of minutes.
