    Hi John,

    I haven't been using mine for normal street photography, but I have used it for some real long range telephoto street stuff and for a lot of just walk around kind of stuff and low light shooting, even an event at my wife's school. Here's a quick cross section. I've only had it a few weeks.

    I lied - this one is a kind of standard length street shot...

    Thx for sharing, Ray. I like the lighting and framing and timing of this one in particular. And yes, Jalex, hopefully this thread will fill as more GH2s end up in peoples' hands...

    I just received mine last week. They are tough to find. I've taken a couple of shots on a 2 Gig card I had. But, I'm waiting for my memory cards to get here before I take too many shots. Hopefully, I can contribute to this list in a day or two. At least one of my cards should be here tomorrow.

    I've been busy at work and haven't had a chance to really take my GH2 out for a spin, except for the short weekend away my family had in Boracay, Philippines the other week. I posted these in a separate thread before but since this is a thread dedicated to GH2 images, I'll post a few here as well.

    All of these were taken with the 14-42mm kit lens, on iA mode (i.e., idiot-proof) and straight out of the camera (no post processing at all):

    All comments (especially negative) are welcome. I'm still evaluating this camera. So, I'm interested in feedback on the quality.

    One of my favorite pics of one of my favorite subjects...my kid.

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/jeremycucco/5518429177/" title="P1020025 by jeremycucco, on Flickr"> 5518429177_2a8a51f807.jpg "500" height="375" alt="P1020025" /></a>

    Shot with the GH2 and the 45-200 handheld at 1/15 of a second. He was engrossed in a computer game and the light from the monitor provided excellent fill.

    20mm, F2, in camera sharpness at 2 which is too much for this lens, it's plenty sharp.

    #2 is a crop, spot focus on eyes

    Alright, here is 50% of the reason I got the 20mm.

    We have adoptions every weekend inside Petsmart. Prior to the GH2 / 20mm combo I was using an FZ18. Even wide open at 2.8 I still needed to use the flash in the store. Half the time, especially the cats, the flash would make them blink, so I would have to shoot and shoot and shoot to get something useful.

    Well not any more. Woo-hoo I'm I happy.

    Often I have to do over 30 critters so time is an issue. Fast and furious is how I shoot adoption pics.

    These were all F1.7, no flash, small, in camera sharpness at 0. Think I will stop down for the dogs next time because of their muzzles.

    Only down side to the GH2 is there is no small 640x480 option so I have to resize every thing. But I saved a huge amount of time not struggling with blinking eyes because of the flash so I will take it.

    Yeah, I am thrilled with how well they came out.
