Been lurking for awhile, and thought it was time to say hi. I picked up a GF-1 last year and was so excited to find a camera that I could use my old Minolta lenses with. My dad passed on a couple of Canon EF lenses a couple of years ago when he gave up on film and I held onto them thinking that I'd pick up a Canon DSLR eventually. The problem with that is the size of all of that DSLR equipment. I enjoy backpacking and have seen sights that my old P&S cameras have not been able to capture effectively (or maybe it was me). As much as I'd like to have better equipment with me, I'm not about to lug that body and those lenses with me. I've enjoyed having the camera with me over the last year and am excited to keep collecting, saving, and sharing the moments that I wish all my friends could experience with me.
