20mm f1.7 on E-PL1 - totally transformational in low light
Sep 23, 2011

This has been commented on a bunch of times, but having been very frustrated with the poor AF in low light with the kit lens and the 40-150mm, I bought the panny 20mm and the camera is now a great performer in low light.

Sure, it could use a low light focus assist lamp, but the 20mm will allow the E-PL1 to focus in very low ambient light.

The other two lens would struggle to focus in light that I thought was pretty usable in terms of flash-less photography. The 20mm will allow me to focus in situations I consider down right murky.

I'm very happy and am content to hold onto the camera for a couple more generations.

Sorry for the regurgitation but I'm pretty pysched with the purchase!
