Thanks for the replies.

Well I would plan to shoot at f1.7 and iso 1600 to allow me to select a fast shutter speed to capture people walking as sharp as I can.

The main negative of this lens appears to be with the autofocus speed. I have read on other threads that there are two things that don't help with this: The first is that this lens works better on Panasonic bodies, and secondly that newer bodies help the focus where as the focus is slower on older bodied. Can anyone confirm this? And also, the G5 is over 3 years old now, would it be seen as an old body?
