    I like them too, especially because, it looks like you are a healthy eater as well.

    Thanks guys & gals you are very kind.

    " ..Like how the oven has an owner "

    terry, I was being 'gender provocative' (I just invented that phrase)

    Uwe asked: " How did you release? "

    Just the 10s timer Uwe, pust the button ....... and move fast.

    I am moving into the bathroom for my next shots, I have the first flush of an idea

    Hmm... those things with implied meanings (particularly wrt to the subjects shown) are best left out.

    Outstanding use of a WA.

    Lighting and color balance

    What impressed me (as I wait about 4 more days for my 7-14 to come in ) is the even exposure and color balance, especially on the oven shot. Did you do much post processing on that, or any special set up with the lights?

    Is it my imagination, or did a lot of us recently get a 7-14?? I wonder if it is from the same source...

    Either way, I am also now the happy owner of one, and looking forward to the weekend.

    Further thanks from me for all the nice comments (since my last post)

    alanwf said;

    " What impressed me (as I wait about 4 more days for my 7-14 to come in ) is the even exposure and color balance. or any special set up with the lights? "

    Thanks again alan. I shot these raw and I increased the exposure a little in the dark tones of the oven and the bread to bring out more detail. Colour balance was AWB at 3450 and I never altered that. It was a pretty sunny day and my body is blocking the window because the highlights were 'blowing out'
    No special lighting, I did have the room lights on. I do find the exposure meter in the G1 pretty good with the exception of handling highlights. The oven shot was Centre weighted and the Fridge Pattern metering.

    Try Panasonic Direct (their online store). I essentially got mine through that mechanism. Even though they show back ordered, they take the order and ship within a reasonable amount of time.

    Amazon has it in stock (actually the seller is One Call - very reputable online retailer) for $1200.

    Hope you don't mind me showing one new shot from today with the 7-14mm. Waited for this lens to shoot this scene.

    Shot was worth the wait. I'm looking forward to heading south in the AM...we are rainy/drizzle/fog in the city but it is supposed to clear!

    I picked up another one in the B+S forum. I foolishly sold my GF1 kit which included the 7-14 and it was a huge regret.

    Guy, do you still have my 14-140?

    LOL sort of . I had to sell it to Bob for the 7-14 but I still have it here but need to deliver it at the workshop. Damn, I like that lens also but I wanted a IR GF1 so something had to give. For now at least

    Re: Finally I got my Pan 7-14mm f/4.0

    So, Guy on a whim I ordered the Pannyleica 14-150 for 4/3....which is supposed to be an excellent lens. Of course it is backordered and I have no clue if it will get here in time but we may have an extra zoom lens to play with. Unless we find me a "cherry blossom" GF1 that eats up my "frivolous expense" budget.

    I created some sort of paper texture and fill the border with it. All the text, the thin frame and the copyright text is generated by an own CS4 droplet directly from Lightroom.
