    This is the lens that really sold me on MFT. One from the late fall, taken at f/1.7:

    For me the 20/1.7 on a ยต4/3 camera is the modern reincarnation of a Leica CL and 40/2 Summicron: sharp, mobile, and responsive. Now all we need is for Panasonic to make us a compact 50/1.7 with similar imaging qualities!

    Happy and sad moments behind the scenes at the local ballet company's last performance ever of The Nutcracker (their parent organization was hit hard by the recession and is disbanding the ballet at the end of this season), all with the 20/1.7 on a G1:

    The director had wanted to make sure her granddaughter got one chance to be in her production. ISO 3200; 1/20 @ f/1.7.

    Touching moments, Ranger. My 10 yo niece works very hard and ballet and was selected for a production of Nutcracker this year. It meant the world to her.

    Damn, this lens is brilliant (and photos too), but the price... in my country I'd have to work 150 hours to get it. And I'm not earning the lowest rate. Welcome to socialism :D

    Luv it

    Love the lens for size, speed and quality of image and it makes a great combination with any micro 4/3rds.

    First portrait of 2010

    I took this image of my wife in her vintage shop today using the incredible 20mm lens - I shot using the square format which very much reminds me of my days using "Blads" in the studio.

    Works for me - :biggrin:

    Many nice shots here!

    Sure looks like the 20mm is a great lens, and I am seriously considering buying it for my E-P1 in 2010. Only thing that puts me off right now is the price (at least here in Norway it is expensive.. Hoping for a price drop when new M4/3 lenses makes their apperance in 2010.

    The river in the snow

    Work was closed today due to snow/ice and too bad to travel so working from home.

    I took a break and went out with the GF1 for some fresh air - the snow was still falling but grabbed a few images. I like this one and am very impressed with how well the 20mm captured the detail, it is one incredible lens that exceeds all my expectations.

    Two from yesterday

    Still very cold for UK with added wind chill but we had some colour in the sky so had to grab a few images with the 20mm.

    Nice shot Brian,

    That is a great shot that captures the challenge of the weather yet the beauty of it as well.

    These micro 4/3rd cameras a pretty good little machines don't you agree???
