I don't think I have much pull, but it's very nice that the Panasonic folks reached out to me to try and help address issues!
You are spot-on mateIt feels an incredibly natural relationship the GF1 + PL25, I realized within 5 minutes of putting mine together that this was going to be my default combo for quite some time to come. The 20 1.7 took a seat at the eBay departure lounge within the week.
Despite the newer cameras boasting larger sensors, tilty swivelly thingies and improved this or that.....I will be perfectly content to stick to this combo for at least year or 2 and patiently wait and see how things develop with the GX1.
It's awesome that you too have found happiness in a 'golden oldie'
Mark, I'm so happy you found the body that plays well with your PL25! I've noticed this also: when my GH2 stops down the lens, it does this in one step, but the E-P3 seems to stop down the lens gradually which results in that horrible sound.There is a definite click when the sensor hits strong light - but it's a singular sound and nowhere near as loud nor as laboured and ratcheted as on the EP3.
So GF-1 in the bag and E-P3's off to market....
Thanks Pavel - not only for the reply but for all your help and support (on and off this thread) throughout my whole ordeal You're a good mate, and the first round, when me meet one day, is certainly on me! .Mark, I'm so happy you found the body that plays well with your PL25!

For now!!! Just kidding! I'm sure it's for a lifetime!! Just being a jokester! I know nothing about marriage. At least not yet!Livnius said:You have a very understanding wife Nic
