    After a long absence here caused by GAS attacks (returning via Canon EOS50d, EOS 5d mk 2, EOS 6d, Fuji XE-1, X100S, Ricoh GXR, Ricoh GRD3 etc etc) I got me a Panny GF1 body for 50 quid. Just waiting for a couple of SRB adaptors to turn up allowing me to use my Canon EF and Leica M mount lenses on it. Interesting times ahead.

    The GF2 was the camera which got me into photography in the first place. I have heard many times it was inferior to the GF!, so for 50 smackeroonies I am about to try it out.

    Looking forward to it.

    Nothing wrong with a GF1. Make sure you update to latest firmware if it isn't already as the "push jog wheel for focus assist" when using an adapted lens isn't there on the initial firmware. I had to do this with mine.

    Welcome back Petach. I went a different route, but just picked up an EP3 a few weeks ago.

    I picked up a G3 body for 115 bucks shipped from adorama, 5k+ clicks on it from the previous owners. looking for lens now. great camera, the grip is small even for my tiny hands :(.

    I owned a GF1 and loved it long time. :wink:

    However, the G5 dropped in price when it was discontinued and I was offered £175 for my GF1 - that was over twice what I paid for it so goodbye GF1 and hello G5!

    If I ever see another going chirpy chirpy cheep cheep then I shall jump at it - it's so damned rangefindery looky-likey. :thumbup:
