Christmas Party Images With E-PM1 & Panasonic 20mm F1.7

Just had a Christmas night out with my work mates.  It was at The Roadhouse in Convent Garden in London.  The venue is a bar/night club where we had a meal, some dancing and live band.  The place was very dark.  The camera auto white balance normally work very well, but on this occasion, it just did not work well.  I had to set up a custom white balance and set the ISO to 2000 and lens wide open at F1.7.  I decided not to use flash as it would be difficult to balance the flash with ambient lighting.  The Panasonic 20mm F1.7 lens did struggle to focus sometimes in the dark condition.

Here are some of the shots.  There is noise, but it did remarkably well and  I am very happy.  All images were shot on RAW and converted using Olympus Viewer 2 and then down sized for web.
