    I decided to take my GX1 and new 45-200 along to my sons sea scouts last week. I was quite impressed with it's performance. All at ISO1600 in fading light.

    Nice set. I really like the warmth in the last one.

    +1 on the last shot. Man that's the kinda light you can only dream of having on a regular basis when you go out to shoot. Love it.

  4. Unfortunately your last shot has done an injustice to the first three. Fabulous light!

    Thanks for your comments everyone. Yes, the last one is my favourite. The fantastic light only lasted a few moments, and I was glad to get that shot.

    Thanks. I have been looking for a cost effective macro option. I can't justify a dedicated macro lens for the occational closeup I want to do.

    These are great shots. For those of you who can remember what ISO 1600 film looked like, these are really amazing. Also, I love my 45-200 - one of the best buys in m4/3.

    Coming from a full frame 5D, I was quite concerned about how much of a compromise :43: would be when it comes to high ISO noise. I have been very impressed with the GX1 so far, and don't hesitate using ISO 1600 if the conditions need it.

    Why would you want to leave? :rolleyes:

    That is a VERY good question. Unfortunately it's rather easy to guess the answer to.
