    Chris, totally off topic, but I saw on your web site that a current interest of yours is experimenting with creative lighting using off camera flash. Have you done any of this with your GF1 so far, or only other systems?

    Thanks guys :)

    Yes, I have tested my strobist gear on the GF1 and everything works great :) ... but I have not actually done an actual strobist shoot with the GF1 yet.

    Here are some of my previous strobist shoots using my Canon gear:

    That image of the peacock lets us know why, if we ever had our doubts, these birds were favored by the gods and royalty! Talk about display!!

    Also really like the sleeping flamingos, though I think placing them within this group takes something away from the photo due to its subtlety.

    The monkey's arm reaching across the fencing of his cage makes a statement but there's something holding me back from loving it...though it does make me feel sad for him in his imprisoned state.

    Wow.........another set of great images Chris.
    The peacock image is stunning and really stands out.

    I have yet to try my 45-200 as I only picked it up last week and have not had chance to try it yet.
