    It's cool to be able to be able to shoot at ISO 100 in low light.

    These images were taken with the light from two 100 watt incandescent table lamps.

    I can only ascribe the mistake to old age!

    Of course it is!
    Thanks for setting it straight.

    Thank you, Johan

    Many forum members (not necessarily this one) are sick of cat pictures, but when one spends a lot of time in her home, cats make very appealing photo ops.

    One of the highlights of M43 - the 20mm f1.7 - you just cannot beat it, (also it is even better in low light on the Oly EPs as they have in camera OS - so you get a couple of extra stops for free0

    The 45mm Panasonic Lumix is also great - expensive but just look at some of the shots that Antonio has made with the lens - OK he is very skilful but the lens looks as good as the 20mm

    One big problem with the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7

    it's just too good!

    It has spoiled me for other 4/3 lenses.

    I do a lot of low light shooting and am not attracted to any of the current offerings which aren't fast lenses.

    The 45mm is extremely attractive.

    I'm trying to sell my Panasonic FZ35 bought in August, and Canon 35mm f/2 to help fund the purchase.
