I know the 20mm f1.7 has many fans, presumably folks who photograph static scenes. In my opinion, compared to the 17mm f1.8 and the 25mm f1.8, the 20mm f1.7 is a dog. Panasonic should be embarrassed for releasing this lens with barely-functional AF.

Golly.

I've had a 20mm since the GF1 came out. I sold the original when a got a mkII in a kit and I have to say that I've never found it real world slow to the point of embarrassment.
