    GF1 == girlfreind??

    My mind seems to have firmly associated the pattern GF with "girlfriend" Like when i was reading the following ad:

    "I would like to purchase a Panasonic 14-45mm lens for my GF1 ........"

    at first glance my reaction was that he is buying a lens for his girlfriend Already this has happenned to me twice in last 24 hours

    You are not the only one.

    My friend has been calling the GF1 his 'girlfriend' for a long time, since Panasonic made the announcement. I noticed we have attracted some attention when we discussed about his red 'girlfriend' in public place, as my friend is very 'mature' .

    Actually, I do call my girlfriend "gf" aloud instead of her name sometimes, she thought it was funny when I bought a GF1, she thinks it is named after her. (As well as the GF Auto Repair show down the block.)

    OK, I get it,
    GF1 works, but what about for Christmas, getting a GF1 for your GF2?

    So what about the number then? GF1 obviously is girlfriend number one?!
    The next model just might be called GF2.

    Ever since they first announced the GF1 I wondered why they called it the Girlfriend 1 - probably something very Japanese.

    ohh no! you dont get to keep both GF1 and GF2 you have to dump GF1 before you go for GF2 -- or 'she' will dump you anyway
