    Hi folks! I brought the GM1 to China, along with a 15mm 1.7 and 45mm 2.8 Macro. I left the 20mm 1.7. Since I have been shooting with the rangefinder for a little while, I realized (finally?) that I am most comfortable with a 50mm (FF), so I tend to work on focal lengths close to this. IMHO, the 15mm + 45mm combo has given me a nice spread for a two-lens combo. Yes, there were times that I wished I had other focal lengths, wider and longer, but so far am satisfied with the combo. There were also times when I wished I had a faster lens than the 2.8 max of the 45mm, but with the macro lens, I was able also to pull some shots that maximizes its close focusing abilities. There might be times I wished I had the full-frame renderings and better lowlight capabilities, but overall, I'm quite happy with the system, and ended up enjoying more the trip with a lighter load.

    Here are some photos I like to share:

    Very nice set.
    When I was there, I saw lots of DSLR with cannons (no pun intended). I felt a little odd carrying my Pen.
