Super-wide!
In reply to paulrfarrington, Aug 7, 2012

I was in Amsterdam last year with the GF1 and had 9-18 as well as 14-45 and 20mm with me.

20mm is certainly great for the streets in low light, so easy pick!

During the day I used the super-wide A LOT, actually more than anywhere else I have been to! It's a great city with lot's of photographic opportunity, but tightly packed which gives a great opportunity to make use of a super-wide to take in the city-scapes with the canals, the people, the old buildings etc. ... and at least I would prefer a rectiliniar super-wide, not a fish-eye -- the look is just too special to be really useful that often and at least for me de-fishing would be too much work.

If you do take a tripod, it's nice to photograph the illuminated stalls of the flower market from behind how they line up next to each other at one of the canals, I think the 14mm would be great for this!

Have a great time, and post some pictures, once you're back
