It appears that you had the Focus Tracking turned on. If I wanted the best response from any lens on the GX-1 I would set it up to focus with the half push of the shutter release. I have never had the 20 1.7 hunt for focus or operate slowly on my GX-1 or GH2. Having the Focus Tracking on full time also cost some battery power.

I did not have focus tracking enabled. Focus tracking on the GX1 is a specific AF setting (face detect, af tracking, 23-area, center, pinpoint).
I believe the setting you're talking about is called "fast AF" or something like that, where the camera will AF constantly during live view. I disabled that setting.
