    Just test my new GF-1 + 14mm, 20mm, 45mm, 14-42mm, 40-150mm around the beach and ocean park also bring my EPL-1 for comparison.

    The outdoor scenery is not that great because the light too strong and a bit cloudy.

    Taking picture inside ocean park present Us with another challenge, first of all the light is really dim, then the aquarium glass not always clean, a lot of reflection anywhere due to the curvature of glass and color spot lamp, and since the fish actively moving the camera speed put into test.

    P1010423ax.

    Huh?
    GF-1 + 14mm (PP a bit to remove the spot lamp reflection)

    Thank's quite lucky with that one because after several shot the crab gone and hide under the rock...
     
  5. Cool shots. What was your conclusion between the GF1 and E-PL1?

    Well, I like both, thumbs up for Panasonic and Olympus for make such a great camera....both have good OOC JPEG in small package, it's a matter of preference of color style if we choose which.

    Obviously no mater which camera you choose you need thumb dial/button, and better grip if you want ergonomic camera. AF assist lamp and IS if you want to take picture in dim light handheld and without flash. But the last accessories I never thought will be helpful is view finder, it helps a lot under bright sun.
