    I decided to leave the D800 at home and take my as yet unused GX7 on holiday.

    I walked into a South facing room one afternoon and was struck by the amazing light streaming in through the french doors.

    Not taking no for an answer, I persuaded a friend to enjoy his cigar in the doorway for a quick 5 minute portrait.

    I'd never used the GX7 until this point, It's a lovely little camera.

    That's really impressive. What was the ISO? Still using my old LX3, but it really is a noisy beast at 400+.

    Very Hemingway. I guess it'll be on the jacket of his next book?

    Did you get the blur of his arm with PS, or in-camera? Very effective shot, no matter which.

    Hi Keith

    The DoF is a most in camera but a soft vignette added in post.

    The standard lens it came with is only f5.6 but with the crop sensor and the closeness of my position I made the most of it.

    I would love the f1.2 but I hardly use the camera to justify the cost.

    This portrait is brilliant. Eyes are very sharp and the detail is amazing.

    I might look into getting one of those :p

    Nice shot

    Great work, really engaging. A good demonstration of what looks like a really good piece of kit too. Those who think that only Nikon or Canon will do, of which I have seen a lot of late, should pay attention.
