          Great news! I tested the GF1 today.



          My colleague brought his Panasonic GF1 to work. So during lunch we went to Papa Rich for lunch and to test the performance of the 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens in low light situation.

          When u first see the GF1, u cannot help but to think it is a point and shoot (like the LX3). So your initial perception is that it will focus and perform like a point and shoot.

          Boy was I in for a shock when I tried it. Immediately whatever perception I had of the GF1 earlier had already vanished.

          What I was holding in my hands then was a mini DSLR minus the size and weight but yet still feels solid.

          Below are my initial findings:
          - Amazingly quick auto focus speed
          - Face Detection auto focus worked. I shot my own self-portrait and the focus on my face (eyes was sharp) was spot on.
          - The screen was bright and the images had very good color saturation and contrast.
          - When u press the shutter release, u can feel and hear the shutter like any DSLR. Maybe the shutter is more silent than any DSLR.
          - The video taken with the 20mm f/1.7 lens really look like professional grade kind of video like those shallow depth of field scenes in the HEROES tv series.
          - The pop up flash is so cute!!!

          The big aperture from the 20mm f/1.7 pancake is truly useful in low light situations like indoors and at night. Perfect for available light photography which I myself is a fan of.

          I'm awaiting the sample shots to be uploaded by my friend.

          Damn! I just poisoned my own self...hahahaha

              Went to Pana dealer in JB yesterday and was shown the GF1 with 14-45 lens kit but no 20mm in sight. Damn.

                          The GF1 is here alright.

                          Brabusm, Edwin and I tried it out at Fotodata earlier today. But they do not have the 20/1.7 pancake kit lens package. They said it will be available next week.

                          Price :
                          GF1 + 14-45 (f/3.5-5.6) kit lens - about RM3,200.00
                          GF1 + 20/1.7 kit lens - about RM3,800.00
                          [I]i shall pass this way but once ...... let me do the right things now .......

                              GF1 shot taken 1 hour before posting. Uncropped, un-PP'ed, handheld, unfortunately no pancake lens.
