    I took this image yesterday in available light - GX1+25mm - 1/60 @ f2.5 - 640 ISO.

    I am very pleased with this and it shows what the GX1 + 25mm is capable of at higher ISO's - a vast improvement on what my old faithful GF1 used to give me.

    I was expecting to hear something bad, I've long used 640ISO in auto range myself!

    I am happy

    I have to admit that I now have the confidence to leave the GX1 in Auto ISO mode most of the time and was at first skeptical even after viewing videos, having tried it I am now happy to use it for general use - happy GX1 user.:biggrin:

    Hi Dave,

    I have the Panasonic Leica Summilux 25mm f1.4 - a superb lens that is considerably heavier and larger than my old 20mm f1.7 but a very worthy exchange!

    There, I fixed it for you. :biggrin:

    Can you tell that I am a slight bit jealous? Nice shot, GX1 sounds like an impressive little beastie.

    It is the Micro4/3 version so without the aperture ring.

    Great lens

    Don't do it

    Sorry - really it is a rubbish lens that is too large, too heavy, has a massive shade, rattles and whines when in use, soft images and struggles hard to focus in all lighting...................Not:rofl:

    It is very much an addictive lens that once used and the results reviewed it gets under your skin and is impossible to let go!

    Seriously though, it is not for everyone and if size is critical then the 20mm is a better option and a superb lens that proves good value for money (I enjoyed mine for 2yrs), but beware, once you have tried and seen the 25mm results and felt the quality build you will be hooked.
