Panasonic GF1 with 20 f1.7

I bought one a couple of weeks ago and have used it at band gigs and have just shot some video footage for a single. It's a great wee camera that I can just slip in my jacket pocket. ISO upto and including 1600 is on par with the 40d...in fact...I prefer the grain on the GF1, it's more film like.

Shooting RAW I don't see much difference as regards to D.R.

The GF1 AF can't keep up with the Canon DSLR's however but I think that helps you to slow down a bit. learn MF and take less shots.

It definitely is a camera that you feel you can take anywhere you would feel the DSLR is too much to lug around.

Hope this helps.....
