    Ahhh ..yes..erm well...erm.....

    I sold it so I could get another GF1 which I must admit I prefer. Ok it's a bit of a brick but I love the menu system and functionality which suits me. The results are very close for quality but the GF1 has the edge in my opinion. I do love it to bits!!:biggrin:

    Andy,
    Would you mind explaining what you like/dislike between the 2 cameras. I have the Pen 1&2 and am thinking about getting a GF1...
    Just wondering from a user that had both....

    Well i found the Pen1 to be a nice design, built well and produce good quality results but the menu system was a bit annoying. For example if i wanted to do exposure bracketing i would have to dive into the menu rather than flick a switch which is all you need to do on the GF1.

    The GF1 in my opinion gives better quality images slightly and is just more intuitive to use, in fact it's a joy to use, so simple with everything to hand. The Auto focus is lightning fast compared to the Oly too. Even though it feels and looks like a brick i just look at the Gf1 and my heart melts a little!

    Nice shot. Great timing to deliver the composition.

    I share your views on the interface of the GF1. I love the Pens too - but for my uses, and my way of working, the controls of the GF1 are spot on. I am sure others say the same for the pens, and a lot comes down to your own habits and comfort levels.

    The "touch and feel" was a reason I chose GF-1 over the two Olys.. Although my experience was based on one trip "touch and feel" fieldtrip to a camera store which had them all...

    Thats a nice nocturnal shot, btw..
