    Hello All,
    Just received my new GX1...Still waiting for the 45mm 2.8....chose not to go the GX7 route basically because of price point. Will be looking for additional lens opportunities in the buy-sell forum. I'm sure I will have lots of questions as I begin my usage of what I believe to be this wonderful piece of equipment.
    For starters would like to get opinions of the best external flash-just to gain more distance (nothing fancy)...Thank you

    Hey! Nice choice of camera; I went with the GX1 as well :)

    Another fun way to get your hands on other focal lengths inexpensively is adapting legacy glass. I've paid a grand total of $24 for my two adapters, and great manual aperture/focus lenses are everywhere, just waiting to be adapted, for pennies on the dollar!

    Welcome to the forum! I have a Nissin flash and it works well at a reasonable price.
