    #2 is fantastic John. I really like the others as well, but #2 stands out for me.

    Thanks, Dan. Amazing piece of kit the GF-1 and the 45/2.8 - you just point, shoot, process.

    John #2 and #6 are outstanding.

    Thanks everyone. The 45 macro is expensive, but it is a treat. Louis, I love the contrast between the rich colours and the soft greens in your photos.

    I just received my 45mm macro. Perfect timing as I am off to Monterey California for a conference on Sunday! Can't wait to get out and photograph with it. After a couple tests in my office, I think this will replace the Contax G 45mm.

    It's still my favorite and most used lens on the EP2
    Lots of grand images to prove it here! I'm afraid of mentioning individuals in case I miss some one out!

    Here are a couple from this morning:

    Jono and JBurnett, just superb. The Dandelions are unbelievable, (a) detail, (b) sharpness.

    Using this lens is .... yawn... just too easy!

    Trying this lens for the first time last Saturday, but no fun it was just too hot: only the flies had a good time.

    Hi Bart . . . . you shouldn't let the football get you down . . . . is this symbolic?If so, then you should console yourself that the Netherlands were heroes down to the last match . . . . we were dreadful right from the start!

    Great shot this incidentally, how are you feeling about the lens, I'm guessing it isn't hot there any more.

    all the best

    Hidiho Jono,

    now I'm certainly not affected by the loss of our team. I think they really did wonderful getting into the final. Nobody expected that to happen beforehand.
    What's more they received a heroes' reception in Amsterdam yesterday

    Regarding the picture it is absolutely not symbolic. It posted it here because I have not much else to show for except the odd flowers

    The lens is excellent for shooting anything but close-up portraits I think. Its character is rather unforgiving: sharp, contrasty and high resolution, but makes it all the better for nature and stills. I'm very pleased so far with the results and the combo with the G1 makes it a super light kit for lazy strolls.

    Temperatures are coming down, but are also going up again, looking forward to the autumn already.

    Now don't tell anyone: AF drives me crazy, really I do prefer manual ...
    All the best.

    This is fast becoming my favourite lens (after my Elmar 50/2.8 which is another great value for money lens for M cameras).

    Incidentally, my favourite setting is f3.2 where the lens hits a sweetspot.

    These are lovely Diane . . . our buddleia is all dried up, and anyway we don't get butterflies nearly as nice as that . . . and if Caspar sees me taking pictures he considers it a duty to frighten whatever it is away!

    Excellent!

    I'm really glad to hear it - certainly well deserved.

    Yes - the AF drives me crazy too . . . but I don't think it's bad for portraits, certainly not as brutal as the Olympus 50 macro, and the oof areas are so gentle and nice.

    As for looking forwards to the Autumn - I like it hot, and the only attraction of September is our annual trip to Crete; the flights are booked, the hotel is decided on, the only thing not sorted out is which camera to take.

    Ron, thanks for the comment. That is a debate I am having with myself at present. There are some tantalising rumours over at the 4/3rds rumours forum which is preventing me from making a decision on a second body at present.

    Diane, the butterfly shots are exquisite.

    Richie, great capture.

    Slightly different use of the 45/2.8 - as a portrait lens and short telephoto - these were both shot at iso100 f2.8
