Anyone have the lumix GF3. It all new to me. Looking to learn about some of the best settings and techniques and what are some other lenses that may be worth buying.

thanks

'Best settings' depends on what you are shooting.
I have the GX1 and the 'starter kit' I would suggest are the 14-45 (I have the power zoom and I would have preferred the speed and accuracy of the 'manual' zoom), the 45mm macro for portraits/close-ups and the 45-150 or 45-200.
Small primes can be a bonus and the 14mm/20mm seem to be particular favourites (I have the 14mm).

apparently the auto-focus is quite good.

Are you on budget? I saw there are offers quite often... sometimes is worth waiting until they have a promotion, I don't know how's in the US, in the UK I think should be something around 50.

I hope it helps.

Lenses, other than the kit lens, perhaps or portrait zoom, something around 40-150 or the Pany equ.

And or, a few primes, there`s a thread here about primes, that might give you some idea.
