Lots of talk here on the forum about subject separation and blurred backgrounds with the new, fast lens on the GX1Mk2.

I can do that with my SX240

Shot this one on my balcony today. The background is mostly birch trees about 10 mtrs away. Full zoom + 2x digital teleconverter blurs the background nicely.
