    Hi All,

    I am Joep, Dutch, am very happy with the LX3 I currently own, but want more :) 43:) , especially to take portrait pictures of our two young daughters, so it needs to be compact (otherwise I won't bring it) and not too expensive (kids are expensive too). So I am looking for:
    • GF2 with build-in EVF (and bounce flash as well as better high ISO performance) :wink:
    • 40-60 mm prime for portrait, so fast lens and preferably pancake style with AF and not as expensive as the 45 mm F2.5 Leica :eek: 
    • 20 mm F1.7 (so it can replace my LX3 and we don't have to bring both) :cool: 
    • 14-140 mm zoom (if I start missing the width of the LX3 and want some tele zoom - but I don't see myself walking arround with big lens attached to the small :43: camera and hate switching lenses :rofl:).
    • Maybe some small cool looking non-native lens(es) :confused:

    Welcome Joep. I'm dutch too. I take pictures using the G1 which actually belongs to my wife. Weather is fine today, I might go for a photo walk around, but the dutch football team has also to play today it's first game. Well, we see.

    G'day Joep. I'll be waiting for the GF2 as well, sounds like it'll be a good one. (I'm glad I've invested in IOS Panasonic lenses)
    Although the GF1 I already own is fantastic.
