Hello to all. I'm new to forum. Well, to be honest, I've been lurking since around Thanksgiving when I started researching for a new camera and finally decided on a GF-1 that I got with the 20mm pancake, but this is my first time posting. I haven't had a chance to really use the camera in anger yet, but it saw a good amount of use during the holidays for general snapshots and I've really enjoyed using it so far. I don't have a lot eperience with photography. My first stint with it came about 6 or 7 years ago when I bought a film Canon Rebel that I enjoyed using but that I didn't use much as I just never seemed to carry it around with me. I then bought an Olympus Stylus with the fixed 35mm lens that was incredibly sharp and that I carried with me everywhere. Not long after that I bought a Yashica GSN that I loved. I took some pictures with that camera that I still like, which is saying something since I am a harsh critic of my own pictures. However, I eventually fell away from the habit. I went back to grad school, got married, and had kids which resulted in a lack of time and money to devote to photography. Now five years later I'm taking up the habit again. The GF-1 seemed closest to my old Yashica. I think it is although there does seem to be something missing, but I'll leave that for another forum post.
