Introduction - Dean from NZ / Japan

Saitama, Japan

just thought I should introduce myself. My name is Dean Johnston and I live in Saitama, Japan. I'm originally from New Zealand and right at this moment I am on holiday there (& on dial-up no less).

Mostly I use rangefinders (M6, Bessa R2 & L and various CV Voigtlander lenses), but we recently needed a new family point and shoot camera, and I managed to convince my wife that the Panasonic GF-1 was the best choice. It has the kit 20mm lens (which seems pretty good so far), but I've also been using it with a CV Color-Skopar 50mm f2.5 and a Jupiter 9 (85mm f2 Russian LTM lens).

I guess I'll post some photos when I get back on broad band.

Oh, here's my Flickr page (no GF-1 photos yet).

Welcome to the home of m4/3rds Dean, have a safe trip - and we'll look forward to seeing some images from you when you get back.

Some fabulous B&W work on your Flickr page (from film scans I guess?) - have you been using the Dynamic B&W mode on your GF1? what do you think?
