    Hi all
    I am new to your forum and have just recently joined a Leica forum. After owning an Rollei 35s, Olympus OM40 Spot, Contax G2, Olympus 500, 520, Canon G7 and Olympus EP1, I have now settled for the Lumix GF1 (20mm, 14-45mm, 14-140mm, 45-200mm, 7-14mm) and the Leica M9 (24, 35, 50, 75, 90mm). I love both cameras (M9 and GF1) and can't learn enough about them.
    I can't wait for the next GF-2 to come out as I think that the GF-1 is fantastic.
    I have used the GF1 for HD filming and great photos as well.
    The GF1+20mm pancake lens fits easily in a coat pocket and will always be where I am....
    So greetings, Michael

    G'day Michael and glad to see you on the forum. I sure like your line up of lenses. How do you find the 14-140? Sometimes i think my 45-200 starts to far ahead. With the magnification in the body (of 2x) not exactly sure if that is correct, but if it is, that increases the start point at 90mm.

    I specifically bought it for HD movies given the quiet motor - it's heavy so I don't really use it for photos - mmmm - silly maybe.
    I have a Leica M9 which I love and the GF1 with the 14-45 which I also love. The 45-200 is very light and the 7-14 gives some cool effects.
    I have had the GF1 since 9/2009 and am still learning how to best use it ... amazing little camera
