    Hi folks!
    Nice place mu-43.com :) 
    I have a Lumix G1 with 14-45 kit, a Pentax SMC 50mm f/1.7 (great lens) and a Chinon 200mm f/3.5 (nice lens and low cost). My next purchase would be a Lumix 20mm 1,7. I love B&W and darkroom but i think the digital photo is very interesting too.

    Hello Carlo,
    welcome to our truly international family of mu43 users.
    I also use a G1 with 20/1.7, 14-45 and 45-200. I prefer to stay
    with original lenses for ease of use and the convenience of auto
    focussing. Post some photos for us to see please
    Cheers from Australia

    Thanks to all :) 

    @downunderdog: i love manual focus, with G1 system is fantastic, better i've seen, after few pratice is fast and accurate. I use chinon lens very rarely, is heavy, need tripod and it's useful for few photos: but for 35$... :) . Pentax 50mm is stunning, it has beautiful color and in low light condition is unbeatable (for me). About my photos i have few good pictures with G1 (i still in test, trying to understand the digital), but i have good materials from my analogic era:) .
    By the way:
