I cannot speak to version 2 of the 20mm, but I have version 1, and use it with my GX7, and I just tested it again. It's focusing is nearly instantaneous, even in my house at night with just some room lights on. Is the difference in your older G3 and the GX7 that great? I don't know, but I do know that I sought out version 1 as it was reputedly better optically. Glad I did now. It's a great lens. BTW, I use 1 area focusing all the time, what are you using for a focusing area selection?
