Panasonic DMC-GF1 **** Reborn! ***

I should have bought this lens mount long before I finally did. It’s so refreshing to use a real lens with manual focus and aperture.

As I’ve said before on my GF1 Flickr set blurb and elsewhere, the thing that let this camera down, for me, was the standard Panasonic ‘automatic’ lenses. The focus ring on the 42mm and 200mm was a joke, it just spins and spins! You’re not sure if its reached its limit(s), especially with the 200mm lens where infinity still looks out of focus.

The only thing is how to get the best results by trying to get around the sensor auto-screwing things. Definitely more to come on this topic!
