    Greetings to this forum from city where some nice cameras and optics were made :)

    I'm in the process of buying a GF1 and 20mm lens. Right now my favorites are Leica M3 with some classic lenses, a Rolleiflex and Chamonix 4x5.

    Some photos are available here.

    Welcome! As you say, good lenses and cameras from your home! My first camera was a Kiev.

    Welcome! A friend of mine is the conductor for the Kyiv Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. They are on tour here in the US and I saw him and his family just last week. We have an invitation to visit anytime and hope to head over there one day to visit the Ukraine.

    I have owned some medium format cameras made in your fair city as well.

    And you can use all your old Leica-fit lenses on the Lumix! Yippee!
