Great shots of your dog! You achieved the "angelic look", I'd say. Really like the second one too, great DOF use.

Thank you, feel like I finally have a shot worry of the GH2

Getting out of that point and shoot mentality, so much to learn but it should be fun.

Alright, here is 50% of the reason I got the 20mm.

We have adoptions every weekend inside Petsmart. Prior to the GH2 / 20mm combo I was using an FZ18. Even wide open at 2.8 I still needed to use the flash in the store. Half the time, especially the cats, the flash would make them blink, so I would have to shoot and shoot and shoot to get something useful.

Well not any more. Woo-hoo I'm I happy.

Often I have to do over 30 critters so time is an issue. Fast and furious is how I shoot adoption pics.

These were all F1.7, no flash, small, in camera sharpness at 0. Think I will stop down for the dogs next time because of their muzzles.

Only down side to the GH2 is there is no small 640x480 option so I have to resize every thing. But I saved a huge amount of time not struggling with blinking eyes because of the flash so I will take it.

Yeah, I am thrilled with how well they came out.

I believe that's why they are placed in those small enclosures, so that we feel the need to rescue them. Very good shots and I agree with the comment about pic number two.

I received the 20mm F1.7 lens several months ago. I find it a new experience as it POV is somewhat different. Here is a photo from my files. I was pleased with how the 20mm handled the details on the swan's neck.

Nice

Did you use a filter to handle the water reflections?

Flax-

No I did not use any polarizer. Here is another photo that I took of my husband today with the 20mm lens.
