    These are some images taken at the Taj Mahal using the GX1.

    I am really pleased with the IQ from the GX1.

    Great set. It clearly shows what the GX1 is capable of (and the photographer as well). What lens or lenses did you use?

    I used both my original 14-45 lens that is a great performer and also the new 45-175X lens that is good but not as good as the 45-200 I used to own.

    I am very dissapointed with the new "X" lenses and they certainly do NOT deliver premium quality still images - shame as they are not cheap!

    I have got rid of the 14-42X and the 45-175X is now on the "To Go" list providing I can swap for a good condition 45-200.

    Wonderful images, Ian. I especially love the warm light in the last one, it was the perfect light to capture the Taj Mahal in. Great work.

    Thanks, unfortunately the sun was setting off to the left as you look at it so I had to wait for it to go down far enough to cast a warm glow on it and the marble reflects it well.

    The color and detail are excellent. How do you compare the GF1 with the GX1, base to ISO 400, using color modes? I have GF1 with 14-45, 20 mm, and 45-200 lenses, and shoot all the time ISO 400 or lower. Am thinking about the GX1.

    GX1 V GF1

    The GX1 is the first MU43 camera that I have used Auto ISO on and it is superb.

    Images shot at 400 - 1600 are very good indeed on the GX1 and unlike the GF1 where I used to see chunky grain and noise, the GX1 has a softer film like grain and very little noise.

    I had my GF1 for 2yrs but have to admit that the GX1 is a worthy upgrade and you have a good set of lenses - do not do what I did and replace the 45-200 with the new 45-175X, the IQ is much better on both the 14-45 & 45-200 than on the new "X" lenses - I am not at all impressed with them.
