    Just realized I have been posting for a little while and had not introduced myself.

    I've had my GF1 for about 2 months. It came with the 20mm, and I added a 14-45 this past weekend. Still not sure about the latter lens as I have not been able to give it a proper workout.

    Love the 20mm though.

    Most of all, love the fun I have with the GF1. I adore my 5D for it's wonderful files and usability, but this new camera is just plain fun.

    I find myself just wanting to use it, and annoying everyone around me...

    Here's a shot of some Valentine's roses...the result of grabbing the camera and taking the quick shot.

    Here's a "proper" welcome for you now that you've made your introductions.:biggrin:

    Beautiful roses and I've no doubt that they've been much appreciated!

    Welcome Pelao,

    and a beautiful gesture too! Love the flowers.

    I think we're seeing a groundshift here towards a camera system we can use with image quality we can be very happy with.

    Looking forward to seeing more through your eyes, with your delightful GF1 :smile:

    Thanks everyone, for the kind welcome.

    jesito: my wife is Chilean, and I do not have a lot of hair, hence Pelao. My brothers-in-law are a bunch of professional teasers and the name has kind of stuck...:smile:
