This Saturday I had a meet up with Björn Utpott and Cristian Sorega. First I had a walk with Björn through the Jordaan and the Vondelpark. And for lunch Cristian would catch up with us and I could hand over the Ricoh GXR to him.
Besides my last few hours with the Ricoh GXR, you can read about that here, I also had a chance to try the Panasonic GF1 with the 20mm f/1.7 lens. Now, just playing with this camera for little over an hour is too short to come up with something that really makes sense, but both Cristian and I really liked this camera. It is a fast and responsive, and the focal length (40mm equivalent) is just about perfect. Certainly a lovely camera for street photography. And even better since Panasonic will also come up with a 14mm f/2.8 lens (28mm equivalent) in 2010.
