    Good morning. I am new to 4/3 photography. I've spent most of my life shooting film with both SLR and Rangefinder. I discovered 4/3 as a very reasonable option to a Leica M9 for digital work. I started with a new GF1, which I really enjoy, then obtained a used G1. I find that the EVF in the G1 makes focusing my M-mount lenses much easier. Still use the GF1 with a super wide 15mm though.

    I look forward to learning and sharing through this forum.

    Hi there,
    Welcome to the forum, like you I find the 15mm f/4.5 Voigtlander Super Wide-Helier an excellent match for the GF1 with the G1 providing a good match to other legacy lenses.

    I guess I should clarify, Yousef Karsh is a famous Canadian photographer, and the quote is his. Sorry. My name is John.

    You mean you weren't responsible for those iconic photographs of the likes of Winston Churchill et al, shame :biggrin:
