    Hi guys,

    Am new to this forum. Have always been using fourthirds system.
    Had a Olympus E510 with 2 kit lens and a 30mm lens. Had not been active for pass few years and have been using more of compact cameras.
    Though recently rekindled love for photography as the panasonic GF1 enables me to carry it easily and the beautiful 20mm lens!
    Recently purchased the 45-200mm lens too

    Hey thanks for the warm welcome. Hi hanzo. I just got the gf1 after a friend showed it to me. Was sold by its size and the f1.7 lens. Decided to get it and play around with it. Recently dug out the Olympus and dusted it off too. Shall go around taking and comparing. Ahaa

    Hey Owen, good to have you on board. Very interested in your experience with the GF1 in combination with the 20mm lens. Advantages/disadvantages, whatever. It is the one combination that I would be interested in for use besides the other equipment.

    Thanks for the welcome ppl!
    As for the combo gf1 and 20mm lens I would say it is a very versatile lens and really get the creativity out of me. Haha. Makes me move around to find more shots and play around with the shot. And best of all it is small enough to carry around with u wherever u go so u can take shots everywhere. Rather than bring along an slr. If ure photographing an event u could actually use this and ur slr with a zoom. So u need not change lenses or bring 2 slr to the event. I would say that the gf1 and the 20mm lens have brought me lotsa joy in photography. Of course being less than 2 weeks of having the camera. Will upload some amateurish shots of it once I convert it to jpeg. Am taking with raw though I dun normally post process. Ahaha.
