Congratulations, Tina, but I think that the first picture (by far the 
superior of the two) would have been just as good with the GF-1.

My experience sometimes is the opposite of yours. I just got back from 5 
days in Denmark. I took the M8 outfit only, but there were certainly 
occasions when I wished I had the GF-1 with 20mm pancake instead.
