A new toy

I've been promising myself a new camera for a long time, and last week I finally delivered. After much deliberation I bought a Panasonic GF1 with the 20mm f/1.7 lens from Precision Camera. I really like the way the micro-four-thirds format has adapters for many different lens systems, and the increased portability means I'll have my camera with me more often.

I toyed with the Olympus E-P2 and the E-PL1, but the E-PL1 felt too plasticy and cheap and the focusing motor on the E-P2 sounds terrible. The UI on the Panasonic is much better, in my opinion, as well. I don't know if I'll miss the in-body stabilization but only time will tell.

The photo above is one of the first taken, and I really like it. As always I have more photos on Flickr, so head over and check them out.
