    Hello, I am a soon to be owner of a Panasonic GF1 complete with their 20mm lens. I have been reading articles on this site to learn more about the :43: systems and photography in general. I know the basics such as f/l, shutter speed and ISO, but I have a lot more to learn.
    This forum seems a great place to learn and I have already been inspired by what other people on here have done.

    Thanks, I'll have to wait for a few weeks before I receive it and then I'll start snapping in earnest with it.

    Welcome Minimalist,

    I know I keep saying this but I honestly believe this to be the best Mu43rd forum anywhere and it is growing every day.

    You will find all members to be friendly, knowledgeable and willing to share their trials and tribulations with their respective MU43 cameras, I have and continue to learn a lot from the members here.

    Regarding the GF1+20mm - This is my constant companion as well and sees more use than my DSLR/Rangefinder cameras! It is a superb small unit that produces outstanding images.

    I am currently reliving a B&W phase and find the GF1+20mm the perfect tool.

    Please see my blogsite (link below with signature) below where you can see many sample images taken with my GF1.

    I look forwards to seeing your GF1 images on here soon - Shoot and enjoy.

    In a couple of areas it certainly has. There is a mix of futuristic looking and 1930's art deco properties. Some look great and some well.........

    I must admit, I have never gone out and photographed houses before.
