    Brought the GH2 and 20mm F1.7 to a press introduction of the new Victory Highball. Event was held at Amsterdam Billiards in New York. Room was dark - most shots @ ISO1600 F2.0.

    Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the performance of the GH2 - it exceeded my expectations.

    Beautiful shots John! Awesome bikes too!
    Are you shooting RAW or JPEG? A lot of others on this forum are complaining about the image quality of the GH2's JPEG engine. Frankly, I'm blown away with its quality. I haven't even tried RAW yet. After about 50 photos on my EPL1, I felt I needed to try RAW settings.

    Very clean for 1600 ... are you using any noise reduction software?

    Did you try to fix the color on pp? I still see the dreaded pinkish skin tone on the people shots.

    Great shots John...

    I really appreciate it when photos not only take you to that place and time, but also let's you experience the ambiance.

    Thx all. Photos were shot RAW. Some had a little PP, others had none. I've been using fellow member's addieleman's x-Rite profile regularly. It takes some of the redness away. Here's a before/after:
