No secret info for me - loved the camera, but sold it to get something smaller that I can carry more easily in my snowboarding jacket.Lots of m4/3 kit for sale in the classified - is there a new body on the horizon, or are people just getting cheesed off for some reason?
How you like the Nikon P7000 Allan . . . its on my list along with a LX5, s95, G12. The G12 has it for me at the moment, that swivel screen is so good when you cant get down and dirty, dodgy knee :shrug:That looks like it was a nice walk, lovely view too, but what's missing is the rain. We have it here in the SE! Bucketloads. And just as i bought a new camera ( Nikon Coolpix P7000) to complement my GF1 too.
Thanks Allan, look forward to seeing some of your P7000 photos. I have the feeling the P7000 might rattle a few cages . . . if the dp preview is anything to go by? If only Nikon would put a swivel screen on it, I'll pay . . . no contest:shrug:I wanted a compact and Nikon came up with a new one at the same time! What could I do?
I did consider the G12 but wanted a longer zoom and as far as I could make out, the LX5 and canon s95 are superb, but cant really compete with the P7000 and G12s bigger sensors.
So far, I am loving it. IQ is exceptional for a P+S, and, of course, its a Nikon.
Too early to form a proper opinion, weather is a bit grim but so far I am impressed.
Looks like there could be a P7000 thread soon
It was a gorgeous day and just goes to prove to my daughter who lives in the SE that it doesn't always rain in Wales.That looks like it was a nice walk, lovely view too, but what's missing is the rain. We have it here in the SE! Bucketloads. And just as i bought a new camera ( Nikon Coolpix P7000) to complement my GF1 too.
Thanks Rookies. Have you considered the TZ10 instead of the LX5? Only thing it's missing is RAW, but the pics are fabulous on it, and the video is amazing. It's my mountain walking camera, and I love it.That a lovely picture.. grrr i just dunno what to do I dont seem to be using mine GF1 as much as i like as the Canon 40D comes out more so I wonder am i making the right choice of selling then get a LX5 as a compact and put the funds into needs with my little girl..
We couldn't lose our club - could weThank goodness the GF1 site is ressurected !
Well done Barbara
Thanks awp, I don't think that it was over exposed though, it was a very bright day here in Wales, and that's just how it looked. Today is dull and dingy though.nice pic but it looks overexposed
Yes, I have looked at the histogram, and there is one tiny little cloud that is very slightly clipped, but dropping the exposure by 1 stop, leaves the picture not looking how I actually visualised it.Really? Have you looked at a histogram for this shot? It's about a stop over exposed - look at the blown clouds.
I think 1 stop is too much. Picture looks ok to me but I just had a play with exposures and 1/3 stop seems to sort it out nicely to my eye. But I wouldnt change it if it looks right to youYes, I have looked at the histogram, and there is one tiny little cloud that is very slightly clipped, but dropping the exposure by 1 stop, leaves the picture not looking how I actually visualised it.
ok - then we have to agree to differ!
This is the one awp and grum thinks is overexposed.You don't have to drop the whole exposure, you can just use some 'recovery' on the highlights. Does look a teeny bit washed out/overexposed to me also, but I make everything too dark usually
Thanks grum - that's what I was thinking. Re the new lens, the 14mm would be a nice acquisiton but I've spent too much money already.The bottom right area looks quite grey and lacking in contrast now. If you were happy with the pic I would leave it as it is!
BTW can't remember if we did this already, but is anyone planning to get the new 14mm 2.5 pancake?
Looks like a nice fit for the GF1. It's TINY! Would be nice if it was a little wider though imo.
100-300 out soon too but a lens that big starts to negate the point of M4/3 a little?
There's an Olympus 12mm coming out but I don't think it's very fast.Not sure a 14mm f2.5 is going to get me too excited.
A 10.5 f1.4 would get me very excited, a 12mm f2 would possibly prize the wallet open.
If the 12mm is anywhere near the 20mm in terms of IQ I will probably buy it and sell the 9-18. It doesn't have to be fast for me, it will be a landscape lens and will never see anything faster than f/8.0 anyway. It does have to be tack sharp howeverI've seen $399 quoted - not sure how that relates to UK prices. Hope the IQ is as good as the 20mm pancake. I was about to replace my lost 14-45 but I might just get one of these instead if not too pricey.

I'll happily mail you a GF1 file if you give me the addy but it may not be tonight. My net connection is running slower than a dead granny.On another note would someone be willing to do me a big favour? I'm to coming back to m4/3rds and would like to get a raw file into lightroom before I go out and buy one. I just want to see what I can get out of it, specifically around high ISO noise reduction (1600, 3200).
I promise I'm not looking to claim anyones image, or sell it ...
GF1, E-P1 or E-P2 preferably
I've taken a quick pic in my dullish office at 800 ISO no flash. I've uploaded a close crop so that you can see what it is like at actual pixels. I would say that 800 is about the highest you could go for a decent picture, though I have used it at higher to get gig pictures in poor stage lighting.Barbara how do you really rate your TZ10 with high iso in low light as i am really thinking getting one and may keep my gf1 too
