    Does anybody know if the Leica SF24D flash unit will work with the GF1?

    I want to get a small compact external flash unit for the camera as even though the in built flash is good, it is not good enough for all my needs.

    Thanks.:confused:

    I used the Leica SF24D on my G1 for all of my Christmas morning shots. It worked flawlessly. I set the shutter to 1/100 s and the aperture to f8 and got all of that configured on the SF24D (easy to do). At f8, the depth of field meant I did not need to focus in my living room. So I had the dream point and shoot camera.

    I wonder why it will not work on a GF1.
