    Hello all.

    After 20+ years of using SLR and DSLR's I finally made the switch to MFT.....and all the fun in taking pictures again!

    I traded my Sigma 70-200 for a GF2/14mm lens and is right now constantly reloading the DHL tracking page for my Oly 45mm ordered from Hong Kong 2 days ago.

    The only thing I truly miss is the viewfinder, are there any third-party viewfinders for GF2 or should I stick with the Panasonic?

    Welcome to the user group!

    That 14mm is such a great little (small even by m4/3 standards) lens.

    ^ what the guy with the closed eyes said ;)
  11. I use an insulated grammar school lunch tote as my GF2 camera bag. Why? Because it looks like a nondescript lunch bag. Less temptation for someone to snitch plus it only cost $5 plus the insulation acts as shock padding.

    Thank you all for welcoming me!

    Ok, so I'm stuck with the Panasonic viewfinder....I can live with that.

    The 14mm is really a great little lens. However, I have never been very comfortable in wideangle lenses and is more into the 50-100mm range. So I'm really looking forward for the 45mm Oly!

    See you all in the forum....
