    Hello! I'm Simon from the UK. I recently picked up a GX7 in a weak-willed moment in my local Jessops store as it was at a knocked down price, presumably to make way for the newer GX85. I've had the camera around a month and it has transformed my photography - I'm now never without a camera and I'm blown away but what it can do in such a small package.

    I still have and shoot with my Nikon DSLR, but it tends to only travel with me if I am going somewhere specifically to take photos.

    I have the Panasonic 14-42, and then I picked up the Oly 45mm and the original panny 20mm f1.7. I will take pictures of just about anything, but I love people and portraiture and these lenses are great for this purpose. I always have all three with me - they're so tiny, why choose right?

    You can see some of my work (dslr and m43) on my site:

    I look forward to contributing here!
