    Out today with the GX1+14-42X lens and took these 4 images.

    I intend to take some comparison shots between this lens and the original metal mount 14-45 lens as I am not yet convinced with image quality of the new lens - it is small and solid but, IQ is not what I was hoping and still getting used to controls on lens.

    This is still a very nice set. Let us know your results when you finally compare the two lenses.

    Luv the pics and your other post with 20mm lens, so crisp.

    Just got the GX1 first 4/3 camara (always likes my Oly 5050 images).

    How much use do you get from the view finder do you consider it an essential tool.

    Does the flash clip into place to bounce of the ceiling or do you simple hold it in place (read this in a couple of reviews)

    Are you able to get by with that focus switch? :eek:

    Then on lens switches are a pain and the zoom switch is in the wrong place for comfortable use unless you are a contortionist!

    Arnold, all the images above were taken with the 14-42X lens not the 20mm. The GX1+20mm combination is superb and renders really sharp images that have a good 3D feel to them

    GX1 + 20mm
