    We went to a wedding reception yesterday and I took along the GF1+20mm just in case.

    I did manage to capture the three images below - all with 20mm wide open and using built in flash, I am very happy with them and once again this camera/lens combination comes up trumps!

    The combination of GF1+20mm is great - small, compact and reliable and the 20mm works for portraits.

    I would love Panasonic to bring out a fast 45mm (f1.8) that is designed as a portrait lens - I have read varying reports about the Panasonic Leica 45mm Macro lens and it's primary function is Macro not Portrait plus being very expensive so I still think there is room for a fixed focal length prime lens.

    That is exactly what I am waiting for as well

    Nice pictures
    - Did you make corners of pictures like that on purpose?
    - Post processing or in camera (film) setting?
    - I am curious how pictures would have looked without flash...
