I've read lot of reviews, seen some awesome pictures and I'm convinced GF1 is the camera for me!

I'm confused though whether to go for 14-45 plus 45-200 lenses or 14-140 lens.

Any thoughts??

Hi Shrisri,

In the Panasonic lens forum, i asked the same question and got good responses.
The thread is call "one zoom or two zoom kit" i think.

I went for the 14-140 and i'm happy with my choice.
I like the range, the iq, no swapping between lens, fits well in my hands.
It feel like i'm having a dslr again but i use it mostly for video and kids stuff.
I'd say that i use the 20mm 1.7 80% of the time.

Cheers

Thanks Yves! That was very helpful.

I'll have to make up my mind (and ready my pocket) for $1500 for GF1 body plus Pana 14-140 lens

Panasonic 14 - 140mm HD lens

I decided to purchase the Panasonic 14 - 140mm HD lens. It covers most of the focal lengths that I normal use and it is an excellent lens.

Last friday i spent the afternoon skating with my son and his classmates.
I took the 14-140 and took near a hundred photos.
Coming from a Nikon dslr with good autofocus performance, i was surprise
by the ratio of good pictures.
Most of the pictures were on focus. Only 5 or 6 were misses.
I was afraid that for actions pictures the Gf1 would not give me satisfaction but i was wrong.
The Gf1 prove to be a very good choice for my kind of shooting: kids,street,portrait.

Cheers

Rumor of new Panasonic lens

I’ll start by saying that I spent several hours on Saturday walking around with the 14-140 on my GF1, and not only did it handle like a charm, but I was exceedingly pleased with images taken at a real mix of focal lengths. Pretty much all wide open, which isn’t al that wide with this lens... This is a good match. Really my first time just walking around with it.

The current rumor is that the GH2 will be available with a 12-70/f2.5-3.3 lens.

OKAY - IT’S A RUMOR.

But with Panasonic set to make announcements soon, it’s very tempting to at least wait. Besides the extra 1 ⅓ stop, you’d get those extra 2mm that I’ve been wanting. And along with the 100-300 lens, and the small 20mm, quite a set. And if the lens design keeps up Panasonics current high standards, that’s going to be quite a lens. The 14-140 is a good bit sharper than the EF24-105L that I used (before selling) on my 5D.

The 20mm f1.7 is a must have lens for the GF1. It is superb and having f1.7 is realy helpful especially in low light.
