In the second version, Panasonic did nothing to improve AF.

Since there are now alternatives to the 1.7/20mm, which are equal or better in IQ (1.8/25mm, 1.4/25mm) and which have a fast AF, there isn't any point left to buy this lens, especially since the O 1.8/25mm is also pretty small and light.

Well, except for its pancake size. I know a lot of people think the 25mm f/1.8 is just as small, but it's not and if you're using the lens with a small RF-style camera like the GM1 then the smaller size really makes a difference.

Personally, it's one of my favorite lenses, but yeah, it's not quick to AF.
