She has the GH1 with only the 14-140mm kit lens so far.

I want to add a lens to her kit that supports auto-focus, primarily to be used for stills, with one of the following purposes in mind:

  • Fast & great for low light shooting. I assume a prime, macro use would be a plus.

  • Longer than 140 for bird & wildlife shooting, zoom preferred.

  • Shorter than 14 for great wide angle shooting.

I'm a Canon owner so I'm not very familiar with the best lens picks for the Panny yet. Would prefer to keep the budget to around $400 or under, including adapter if necessary, but could go a little higher if it's something really compelling.

Suggestions?

20mm f1.7 is a great gift for any GH1 kit owner.
