What can I say? I love this camera to death. Most of the gadget photos I've taken (and that you've probably seen) were snapped with this device. I almost exclusively use the pancake lens (20mm f/1.7), and though it's not exactly the most versatile piece of glass in the world, it can (and does) produce lovely results. My biggest gripe is probably with the software, which is clunky at best. It's not hard to use... but it isn't exactly easy either.

Sure, there are newer, faster, and probably better cameras on the market now — but the GF1 represents the moment when micro four-thirds cameras came into their own.
