Hi everyone! Thought I should introduce myself rather than just lurking as I have been for the last few days.

I'm a 30 yr old anaesthetist living in Manchester, UK. I've been into digital photography since its inception really (sure I've still got some old <1mp camera somewhere!), and have previously only used compacts and bridge cameras. I have just bitten the bullet and spent-out on a new Panasonic GF1 with the 20mm F1.7.

And I've fallen in love! Everything about the camera exudes quality, and with its specially moulded brown leather case it really does stand out! I've just returned from a trip to Budapest with my wife, and the GF1 was very at home visiting the old camera shops with their Soviet era rangefinders.

I'd previously been a real macro guy, but this camera and lens combo screams street shots and candids. It also takes a really nice architectural fragment shot.

My next purchase is probably going to be the 14-45mm, so any good deals you know of, let me know! Best I've seen so far is Park Cameras for £225...

Enough about me anyway! This looks a really friendly and helpful place and I'm hoping to contribute and get lots out of it!

Cheers,

Welcome Pete....
Congrats on the camera... I have the 2 Pen cameras but to be honest, I really have a desire to get the GF1.
If your really looking for the 14-45, grab it as soon as you find one. They will be very rare before years end and will start to climb higher in price.
It's a real gem.

Good to see ya here....
Don

Thanks everyone!

I took over 700 pics in Budapest, so really need a good afternoon to sit down and sift through them - hoping to find one or two good-uns, which I'll upload.
