I have just got back from purchasing a GF1 from Park Cameras in Burgess Hill, Sussex (Superb service)

I was toying with the idea of getting either a Leica X1 or E-P2/GF1 but decided on the GF1 as I don't think the fixed focal length will keep me happy BUT I DO intend to purchase one in the near ish future. But for now it's Micro 4/3!! I decided on the GF1 as it was considerably cheaper than the E-P2 and from my images I have taken in the past from both cameras (GF1 and E-P1 that i had) the IQ is too close to call. Some images are better on the GF1, some on the E-P1. I had the last 20mm kit in stock which is the red bodied one which I love! Makes a nice change and still looks cool (IMO!:biggrin:)

I also bought the EVF which I think is really good! I can see everything reasonably clearly and the info numbers on the bottom are crystal clear. It looks much nicer on the GF1 than the Olympus one does on the E-P2. It really was a close thing between the two but in the end the GF1 just got to the finishing line 1st :biggrin:

Now all i gotta do is save up for the X1.....eeek!:rolleyes:

Well here it is!

Poor quality image from the S90 but the light was poor and it's just a quick pic. Hopefully take some pics tomorrow!

Hi Herman

Thanks, yeah I am really chuffed with it actually. I am impressed (yet again) with the quality of the images from the 20mm f1.7, it really is a superb bit of glass. Looking at getting a nice Leica or Voigtlander lens to get that 'Leica feel'!! Can't wait to take it out on a proper outing.:)

Andy, I'm so glad you're happy. What made you sell this camera off before? Has anything changed with the camera itself since then? By the way, that close up of those drops of rain or dew is wonderfully crystal clear!

Erm...dunno really. I thought I wanted a big DSLR but they really are not for me. The GF1 is just about perfect!!! The camera is still as good as the other I had. I just hope they don't announce a GF2 in the near future!! :biggrin: I'll have to raid the kids college fund then!!:eek:

I know, I've been wondering about that - the GF2, too. My one and only kid's college fund is spoken for...though it is her last year as an undergrad.... Hmm...
