If you compare these lenses with the panasonic 20/1.7, the 20 is the loudest, because it moves the whole lens-assembly.

Got a 20/1.7 today and it is quite noisy when focusing. Now I know why.

Until now I had only 14-45 and 9-18. Both are completely quiet so I was a bit surprised.

Focusing on my GH1 is also a bit slower, but not really a concern at least not for now.
