In my looking around, I seem to see pretty slow zooms. Is it a size thing, where the makers want to keep everything small?

    Maybe I've missed something when looking around (?). Educate me.

    Thanks...
    I believe those zooms will come, probably from Olympus. This is probably also one of the reasons why we haven't seen a pro m43 body from them yet; there are simply no lenses to match. There is a 12-50mm f/2.5-3.3 rumoured to be released from Panasonic this spring btw.

    The best alternative at the moment seems to be the Zuiko 14-54mm f/2.8-3,5 II. It's compact, relatively light, has excellent build quality and seems to perform very well on m43 bodies. (I don't own the lens myself yet though, so take my recommendation for what it is.)

    Thanks, Jorgen. Useful info. I'll keep an eye out for the Panasonic lens.

    And I just realized I may have gone OT here on the "fun with..." thread, which is for pictures. Please return to your regularly-scheduled programming .

    Hi, See...

    http://rosalindcaplisdanceadademy.co.uk/

    My wife's website for which I took the pictures, the kids with certificates and the three balance were Lieca Dlux3, and the rest were GH2 with the 20mm f1.7 lens, with dance studio lighting. in the The "T on the box" I used the flash on the camera up-side down for fill, and the girl in the ballet dress was photographed by her father, I think.

    They asked me to provide 2mb pictures, but they have downrezed them to 20Kb!

    Re: Fun with the GH2

    Does the GH2 still have some fans out there in GetDPI land? :-)
    Just received mine a week ago and finally had a chance to put one of my Leica R lenses on it today. Looking forward to trying out the video and comparing still images with my G1....which I always thought was pretty good.

    looks very 3d and real!

    I just thought that it is crazy how many models we see in m4/3 and now then there are mirror less from Sony, Pentax, Nikon also coming into the game.
    I am allways for innovation and progress but specially Panasonic and Olympus present too fast and too many cameras for my taste.
    They make you feeling to have something "outdated" very fast, even though the real changes are not that big. I admit I also did junp back and forth.
    GH2 seems one of the most complete packages in m4/3 world.
    Regards, Tom

    Re: Fun with the GH2

    Like you, Gary, I'm a late adopter of new technologies. Maybe, that's because I work in the technology sector

    Still, I got my GH2 a few weeks ago, and I am enjoying it very much. Quite an upgrade, coming from the G1.
    I find myself using the kitlenses more often on the GH2, because AF is much faster. But I have used and will use my MF as well, of course !

    Here's a few examples of what I did recently !

    (Nikkor 50/1.4)


    (45-200 AF)


    (probably 14-45 AF)


    (Nikkor 300/2.8 IF-ED + TC 300)


    (Nikkor 300/2.8 IF-ED + TC 300)

    Stunning stuff, Raf. Looks like I'll have to put a GH2 on my list (stuck at G1 right now)
