I also felt they may look a little long. They made my feet look like flippers in the mirror but I don't think its as bad in a photograph, thoughts? They have a strangely elongated toe for something this chunky (chunky for me, atleast).

My goal is some zip boots that look good with dark or light denim that aren't boring medium brown.


I'd originally dismissed them because of the sole thickness but then I saw some fit pic from aloha rag that made them look decent so I figured I'd give them a shot.


also, sorry for the shit quality pictures, it goes dark way too early in the winter and I'm not sure how long its going to be until I'm at home when its light out
.

Thanks for the opinions guys, but I decided to send these back; they were a bit darker in color than i would like (treatment is really nice though), they fit a bit long for such a chunky shoe, and the thick sole just gave it a work boot vibe to me that i just didn't dig.

If anyone has any other suggestions for a worn in looking beige or light brown zip boot, i'm all ears biggrin.gif

Midnight blue. The flat finish of the peccary, as opposed to the usual finish, makes the dye look a lot different:

Peccary is a tough leather, streetfighting leather.

Orange deerskin - super baller. Not for cleaning out gutters though.

Panasonic GX1 body + 20mm F1.7 pancake lens

It's about time I got something that can reliably produce high quality indoor pics without the need for a flash. My current camera is really old, so this should be a huge upgrade for me.

I already have a burgundy knit! Hope it's good
post #32423 of 43391
That's right, forgot you had that OL. Well, now I'm not sure if I'll keep both the purple pocket knit and the burgundy cardigan, will have to decide when it gets here

I use the same lens on my gf1. Even though the body's a few years old I haven't felt the need to upgrade. I didn't like the direction Panasonic took with the gf series but the gx1 is nice.

Yeah, I knew you had the GF1 with same 20mm F1.7 lens and were very happy with it.

The GX1 is the true successor to GF1-- Panasonic's enthusiast camera. The biggest improvement is undoubtedly the new image sensor which is now usable at very high ISO. I read a lot of GF1 owners with the same lens who upgraded and they say the improvement in this area was not subtle. If you're interested in upgrading Amazon is selling customer returns of the GX1 body for only $238. Considering that you can sell your GF1 body for about $100, this could be a very cheap upgrade path.

Now I just need to get a tripod so I can take better fit pics. Any suggestions?

What do you think of these m4/3 lens that are branded as Panasonic-Leica? They're supposedly Leica designs that are made in Japan. I see people raving about the 25mm F1.4 Pana-Leica as being one of the very best m4/3 lenses available. But I was concerned the depth of field would be too narrow for everyday use. Thus I went with the 20mm lens to start with. However the sample pics from that Pana-Leica lens look amazing! They have a very organic, almost 3D look to them. It's almost like the difference between a tube vs. solid state amplifier. It may not be more realistic, but the image more pleasing and simply draws you into the scene.

^^ i've been using the 25mm f/1.4 on my GX1 for about a year now and it's a damn good lens. It really does have a nice way of rendering the overall picture and i leave it on all the time. Does anything from street photography to portraits pretty well (awesome bokeh and low light ability too). As for the narrow dof, you could always up the aperture but diffraction is a small problem with m4/3, only noticeable if you're pixel peeping though. The downside to the lens would be that it's a bigger than the 20mm, can't fit it into a coat pocket. I posted a few pics with the 25mm in the photography thread and my last few waywt's used it as well.

The oly lenses are pretty good too, especially the 45mm f/1.8.
