Pancake lens for E-PL1
Jan 3, 2013

Newbie here.  Purchased a used E-PL1 (with the kit 14-42 lens) recently.  Though the camera produces very nice images in good light, the kits lens seems to be very inadequate for indoor / night light shots (which is my primary shooting need).  I do have the Panasonic LX7 which is fast in low light but I am somewhat unsatisfied with its noise levels.

What would be a good (and economical) lens for indoors.  I have been reading about the Panasonic Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 lens.  I like the F/1.7 and think it should give me fast exposure times indoor.  The price of about $300 seems me deter me a bit :(.  Since it is a panasonic lens, will it fit the PL1?  Will I need any adapter?

Any other lens suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks!
