    Mind you, I suppose a bit of variety is good . . . I keep things changing, but usually it's only because I can't remember what I did before

    On a more serious note, it's always instructive to filter a new camera's facilities through one's own preconceptions.

    The GF1 is a bit complicated after the Leica, but it does seem to work pretty well.

    Thank you - it's a fun camera isn't it, and nicely thought out, the quick menu rather reminds me of the lovely ricoh interface.


    Ah well, I might, but it's not really where it fits in to my life . . . I can see that it'll be hard to resist though.
    If you already don't know Gobsmacked, then pulling your plonker may really be "stretching" things! LOL

    I'm not even sure how often I'll need to tweak my AF and use your technique of using the AF/MF button to release the MF magnification (but it works and that's good knowledge to have)--since I shoot a lot with the 20 on it and that lens' AF has been very good. BUT--rethinking using the AE on the AF/AE lock instead of AF brings me back to working as I do with the 5D--but having to rethink what finger/thumb does what .
