    Hi Everyone!

    I'm Josh - a new Mu-43 user.

    I bought a Lumix DMC-GF2 last weekend with the 14mm f2.5 and 14-43mm kit.

    I've already purchased an adapter so I can use my Minolta/Sony AF lenses from my old A100 - I've taken some test shots and the adapter works well!

    I wrote a blog post about my initial impressions (with some sample photos):

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 First Impressions - Tigerstyle Industries

    The short story is that I love this little camera :2thumbs:

    Cheers

    Josh

    Hello and welcome Josh. You have followed a well-worn route (as per your blog) from dslr to mirrorless.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

    I've already been buying some accessories for it... The Sony/Minolta AF Adapter, a Lowepro Bag, A Pistol Grip (for Video).

    I'm now looking at selling my Sony A100 as I can see it'll never get used now!

    Cheers

    Welcome from another UKer but from down south, the other side of London. I hope you enjoy your GF2, it's a great camera. When you sell your Sony have a look at the 20mm f1.7 lens as it's one of the nicest lenses for the Micro 4/3 system, very sharp and a fast lens.:thumbup:

    Hi Josh and welcome from another Sheffielder. I have the GF1 + a few bits and bobs.
    Sold my E3 and don't regret at all - even though I loved the camera.
