    I haven't been able to find a detailed book for my new GX1 so I wondered if the David Busch book for the GF1 would still give me some good detailed user instructions. Is anyone familiar with the GF1 book and the GX1 camera?

    Afaik, gf1s controls are vastly different than the gx1s. They did away with the film modes, and some other stuff. (settings of the gf1s dynamic B&W on gx1?)

    I'm not familiar with the said book - I used the guide for LX5 by Alexander White as the menus are similar. Then I read twice the PDF manual. I found the GX! options to be quite easy to understand.

    I thought the GF1 book was a colossal waste of money. It really had nothing the owners manual didnt, and, IMHO, did not explain anything much better.

    Now, I understand that it may be much better than some of the different language translations, but for a native English speaker, I was massively disappointed
