Gains will be minimal! Yes the 20mm is a little slow to focus, but also on newer cams. You could try manual focus with it, there are many situations where that is doable, like when spying on playing kids.

Auto-focus with the 20mm is fine on newer cameras. It's perfectly acceptable on my GH2.

Focusing the 20mm manually is a pain. Focus-by-wire (it's electronic focus, NOT mechanical focus) is slow and inaccurate compared to manual focus lenses.

Maybe the GX1 would be a worthy upgrade. Or get an Oly 45mm f1.8. Lenses are always a better investments in terms of your system.
