    I know this lens is still hard to get. But perhaps it's time to start posting a few examples.

    We've had a brief spell of warm, dry weather. So I rode my motorcycle south across the Oregon border to explore some of the dirt roads just north of Mt. Shasta this afternoon. Shot with my GX1, Raw and opened in ACR.

    While I was shooting, a curious horse trotted up for a close up.

    Surely I'm not the only one with this lens by now. Anyone else with images to share?

    Just picked one up with the attached GX1 today. Hopefully I'll start getting some in here myself soon.

    I really like your horse picture David, such a unique perspective, and the mountain in the background doesn't hurt either.

    Looks like a fun trip! Thanks for these gorgeous reminders from northern California.

    Can't help there. I returned my copy due to the blurring issue. A shame as it really is the right size, but for $450 net, there's no way I was holding on to a defective product.

    My first upload here. Some pink heather from the back garden.

    EDIT: Pity the exif is gone, should have figured that iPhoto would not play nice with it.

    EDIT2: Not iPhoto but the forum iPhone app...

    ISO 160 1/100 f/5.6@42mm

    Well, the lens might have its problems, but it sure can get some stuff done.

    I'm still kicking my ass for missing the GF3 + this lens deal for $349.

    That's less than what the lens on its own goes for here in Ireland.

    So what's the consensus on this lens? Is it decent enough throughout the focal range? I was thinking of picking one up for a walk-around. I like the size of it. I was considering dumping the 14, and using this instead.

    I find the lens quite good in terms of image quality and superb in terms of portability. :smile: I think the 14mm lens is still worth keeping though. It's really good for super portability and also for evening photography.
