    Not completely....
    But this time i tried to do something more expressive, more powerful. Thats the reason why i tried and tried and tried and in the end found a new pp process which is a combination of new elements and the "old" style. I feel i will switch from time to time between both kinds of processings... dont know where this leads me to..... dont know whether those processed pics are good or not. I just hope they are strong in expression and glue for the eyes...

    I think they are more powerful, from the images that you have shown, which cover a range of subjects from landscape to portrait. But, your old process was outstanding, so keep both going - the subject with tell you which one to use.

    As they say "a change is as good as a rest" - love to see more.

    Klaus a wonderful range of photographs. Really enjoyed looking at them. Powerful support for the 4/3rds (m4/3rds?) standard.

    Below are some 'fun' shots of a classic British production car of the 1960s, the Austin A35. This beauty is owned by a lady who has driven it for the last 35 years. GF-1 and the lovely 20/1.7

    Cairo candids, all shot from the hip while on the move. GH1 with zoom mostly at 14mm. ISO usually between 200-800 but this is real run and gun shooting so I don't have much time to think about camera settings. This is a small recent sample of a private 15 year documentary project of Cairo, Egypt

    Yep, that's the one, only mine was white. Incredible piece of engineering in some ways but it puts you in touch with your own mortality to drive one!

    I like the fact you have used colour in this one, Godfrey - I think it works better than black and white.

    Re: Fun with 4/3rds cameras/ Image Thread

    Dan, a couple of nice pictures - especially the Bond.

    John, looking at that landscape picture #2, I could almost imagine myself in Hampshire or Sussex in the old country.

    Here are a couple of landscapes shot with the GF-1 and my Elmarit 90/2.8.

    In fact, I am not so impressed with the results of using my Leica or Voigtlander lenses on the GF-1. In terms of colour, contrast and indeed sharpness (and I do know how to focus a manual lens) it surprises me that the results from the m4/3rds lens by Panasonic are on the whole better.

    It could be my Voigtlander bayonet mount - or as I suspect, the tolerances for correct focus/mounting are just not that exact when using a m-bayonet adaptor.

    I agree. Whatever goes on between the camera and its own lenses certainly delivers the goods. Done the usual test/comparisons and if I want edge to edge consistency I have to go for the original Panasonic lens. Shame they don't do more fixed focals ...

    Glad to find out there is someone else with a similar experience. I also think it depends on the distance of the subject. I have had good results with the CV 50/1.5 for some unknown reason but longer or shorter focal lengths are not impressive at all, including trying my stellar Leica 35-lux-asph.

    Here's hoping about some more primes - 4/3rds rumours abounds with tantalising news of possible Panasonic primes. I'm hoping that perhaps Leica might relent and allow a m4/3rds prime like the 45/2.8

    Michiel - lovely colours and sharpness. Good composition and presentation. Well done.

    One from earlier today, re-emphasising what a great lens the 20/1.7 is (on the GF-1 in this case). f2, iso160.

    Thank you Louis!

    Your photo with the 20mm is very good. It is still on my wishlist.
    Lovely colors and paintwork!

    You are right as you mentioned earlyer that the M4/3 lenses produce the most sharpness and are very well corrected.
    Still though there are many old manual lenses with wich I am capable to take photographs, I cannot make with the standard lenses.

    Here is another one from a few days ago on the Normandy coast near Dieppe with the G1 + kitlens.

    One from earlier today, re-emphasising what a great lens the 20/1.7 is (on the GF-1 in this case). f2, iso160.
    Hi Louis,
    The colors are incredibly rich in this wonderful capture!

    Thanks Leica77 and Michiel. I bought the Gf-1 with the immensley portable 20/1.7 so that I could always carry a camera. This is an example of an opportunistic shot I wouldn't have been able to take otherwise.
