Thanks. All handheld, no tripod. I've learned to just set the ISO to the highest level I think will be ok which is 1600 IMHO for this camera (I wish I could have a more usable 3200 ISO but it's just not good enough with GX1 IMO), and fire off bursts of shots hoping some will be good.

I think the heavy old lens helps to prevent too much shake.  I realize I am breaking all the rules here with regards to 1/FL rule, which should be 1/160 and up with this lens, but it seems to have worked ok

Here are a few more:
