Starting to get my Photo Mojo back after a lull...
GF-1 with Panasonic 14-45mm at 14mm Two shots combined and tone-mapped in Photomatix Pro (f/11 with 1/50s and 1/25s, hand-held). Topaz Adjust 5 filter and Silver Efex Pro 2.0 filter applied, PS CS5 unsharp mask.
I liked my GF-1 also until I broke the glass on rear screen. I found out that Panasonic charges a flat rate for repair of that camera regardless of what's wrong with it - I think the quote was $320! I told them no thank you and just purchased a new GF-2 for about the same price. I have a hefty investment in Panasonic lenses so wanted to stick with their body. Haven't really had time to test it out much yet, but taking it with me to Orlando next week for a family vacation over Thanksgiving. Hopefully will find good opportunities there.

That's not a bad price. My father bought one a year earlier, a '52 and he paid at least $850.00. It was a woody station wagon. He was a professional photographer, but he didn't get any shots of the car. He's 95 now, and I'm going to show him your picture, and I am sure that he will enjoy it.
