    Well, this thread did it-- time to download the schedule and do a little moonlighting to afford that 20mm f/1.7 . Guess the real question is whether I should do an extra night and get the GF1 along with it... very tempting.

    Might I suggest scheduling a few nights....there are some other lenses that you might want in your collection

    Thank you Keith!

    He is a trial lawyer who was conducting a facilitation hearing for a case in which I represent the plaintiff.

    He is a fan of Karsh though.

    Best time of the year to moonlight (holidays)-- but I am finally feeling my age, I'm not exactly "fresh as a daisy" after handling an overnight shift. But still worth it for a lens or two (or three if I keep hanging around here).

    Vivek- that shot made me laugh! Very neat.

    Here's one of my first few shots with the G1 and 20mm f1.7 lens. At one of the private aviation airfields in Anchorage. If you like small planes, there's alot to see out there. I'm not sure what model of plane this is however.

    I'm pretty sure this one is a de Havilland Beaver with a 9 cylinder radial engine. Pretty impressive looking engine!

    It's not mine Micheil....but I sure enjoy looking at them. The Beavers really stand out in a crowd of smaller single engine planes (there are alot of Super Cubs up here in Alaska).

    It must be an amazing experience to fly one of these.....maybe you could post a picture of yours here (or on the Planes, Trains and Automobiles thread).

    The business end of a large, single engine (turbo prop?) de Havilland Otter. This looks like an 8-10 passenger plane.

    I really do like this lens!

    Had some fun with this lens over the weekend at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. A couple of my favorites:









    This lens is so sharp!! The 100% crops from some of these images are amazingly detailed. More here:

    can you pls advise which/any UV filter to use for 20/1.7?

    The 20mm makes a nice fast wide angle lens for some circumstances. I shot a series of six handheld shots with the Lumix G1 and used Photoshop CS4's Photomerge to stitch together into seamless wide angle shot. 100% crop included. All shot Raw and processed as DNG's in Camera Raw. The camera's Auto White Balance was pretty accurate. Way better than my Olympus E3. ISO 400 held up fine.

    Sorry, this image was locked accidently when I sent some family shots out with password, it is back now, not sure exactly when it disappeared from view.

    This is a shot of my niece, her face kind of reminded me of one of Leonardo's great works!

    I wasn't aware that the Louvre had such an open policy about cameras. Here in North America many galleries and museums are getting very 'anal' about photography. Some prohibit all photography, and some prohibit photographs of any artwork. The "no-flash" policy is even more common.

    The weird thing is that "corporate" building owners are now instructing their security staff not to allow photos of their buildings. I've had security staff fly out the doors to tell me I couldn't take a photo of the building (so I moved three paces to the street to do so). And I was asked to leave another building after "breaching security" with the following shot:



    Sorry, rant over.

    Hi,

    Taking photos is ok, but no flash.

    Sometimes the artists have little signs indicating no photo, which is a bit of a laugh as they are quite obviously making a copy of a 'great master', but I do leave them alone.

    Have a Merry Christmas by adding a little light to my Olympus E-P1 and Pansonic 20mm f/1.7...







    With that last shot, taken at ISO3200 with supplimental lighting by a car coming around the corner. Pretty impessed with that.

    Nothing special in terms of sunject matter, I was out for dinner and thought I would test the low light ability of the EP2 with the 20 1.7. I have to say I am impressed with this combo.

    ISO800 @ 1.7




    ISO1000 @ 1.7




    and one shot from the hip walking through the farmers market earlier in the day.

    Graham that first shot is pretty hilarious. I wonder if he sees his reflection in lens.

    Looks pretty special to me....well done! No snow there....that alone is special for those of us in the northern climates.

    It's a great lens, no doubt about it.
