Taking the time to remember (and revisit) the Panasonic...

L1 and L10 4/3 cameras. Somehow during the seemingly short lifespan of the regular 4/3 camera releases, these unique Panny models don't come into the conversation anymore - and that's a real shame. Both of these cameras were, IMO, superb platforms in their own right. I've been nothing but smitten with both models - even today. And of course, the awesome Leica glass that came with these two cameras (I say awesome because my copies were outstanding), was the icing on the cake. Capable of superb imagery and colors, they seemed actually ahead of the times (at the time - yes, play on words).

For some odd reason, these cameras are rarely (if any) revisited on this forum. Perhaps they were the odd fellows in the lot because although they were 4/3 cameras, they had the Panasonic moniker and amidst all of the Olympus hoopla, they were somehow pushed to the rear of "memory lane."

So let's see some of your work with these cameras (for those of you who had - or still have - the L1 and L10. Don't be shy - so show your work and let's bring these two cameras back into the conversational spotlight.  I've been posting images from these two cameras over the past year, so let's see some of yours.

Have a great one....
