    Ray, these must have been with that great new lens, right? These are looking quite good and you're making me awfully hungry a good diner breakfast.:biggrin::thumbup:

    Actually, its the Panasonic 20, another great new lens. I'd pre-ordered the 9-18 quite a while ago, and then bought Ryan's 20 a few days ago from the classifieds before I knew the 9-18 was getting ready to ship (and charge!). And, as luck would have it, they both showed up within an hour or so of each other a couple of days ago. So its a bit of an embarrassment of riches around here at the moment. The bad news is I'm broke. The good news is I'm done buying camera stuff for a good long while. I have the kit zoom, 9-18, 45-200 and BOTH pancake lenses, so I'm covered over the whole focal length I care about and have good low light capability (with all SORTS of options between 14-20mm!). If anything, I may sell the Oly 17 pancake. But then again, I may not. I like that one too. I'll just have to see if I still use it enough to justify keeping it before the price on them drops so far as to make selling it silly. And I have a bag I can easily carry all of it around in and a strap that works for me. Not sure what else I'd want!

    Aha, thanks Ray. The 20mm is a great performer.

    Sounds as though you're definitely all set. Take your time, and maybe log out of Amazon and turn off "one click" buying.:biggrin:

    Thanks for these photos, too.

    No worries. This whole spree was brought about by our bank being "merged" with another and us being notified that we had about a zillion credit card bonus points that we'd been blissfully unaware of building up for about 10+ years. Realizing we'd better use them before the changeover between banks, it took about ten minutes to figure out that the best way to do it was to cash them all in on Amazon gift cards - the amount was substantial and Amazon had a lot more stuff and sold the same goods for a lot less points once you converted points into Amazon dollars. So my wife and I have both been busy stimulating the Amazonian economy and we still have a decent size credit there. I think the only things I've paid for out of pocket have been the 20mm and the Aperture 3 software. So I was kind of kidding about being broke. But very real when I said I don't even know what else I'd want at this point, in terms of m43 gear. And I'm really not interested in anything bigger.
