    Someone on another forum was selling a GF1 for silly money (Low) and I wanted a camera to take to Florida on hols in October and wasn't content with a compact so I snapped the camera up. It's been years since owning a GF1 and to be honest I don't know why I didn't keep my last one! They are great fun and pretty decent cameras. I had some fun this morning popping my Canon EF lenses on and found the Canon 24-105 f4L and 100mm f2.8L macro lenses worked very well especially the 100mm macro!

    Here are a couple images:

    I had the GF1 for about two weeks. But I kept the EP2 instead. In retrospect, I'm not sure why -- other than the Pen's good looks.

    I thought as the G series evolved, that the GX1 is what the GF2 should have been. But never mind. The photographs are lovely, Andy, and you'll get great holiday shots when you go away, and we will look forward to the results. :)

    Man what a monster lens on that gf1 :D

    So did u get a m43 lens w/ the gf1? GF 1 w/ 20 was what attracted me back to photography when they released it way back when. Before that I had not really touch a camera outside of a film p&s for snaps for about 2-3 years. I still have it.

    I loved my 24-105mm f4L!

    Great set of macro shots. I had a GF1 for a little while but I never quite understood why the plastic shroud around click-wheel extended out so far. It made it harder to turn and click the wheel easily.

    No I got it body only as I already have an Olympus 17mm f2.8 which is a better focal length for me.
