GH1 at Motorcycle Show - not a good idea

I made a mistake of taking the GH1 with 14-140 to the motorcycle show, using such a slow lens makes it hard to do good footage indoors. even with iISO on (can go up to 800 ISO) I was getting shutter speeds in 1/10 or even slower on some locations.

Maybe it's me, and I don't like to whine, but I find the on board flash pretty useless for semi-serious work. So, I am looking to order the 20mm 1.7 lens for such purpose, but it's out of stock in most reputable places and I will not pay over MSRP for it. How often does it come back in stock?

by the way, some more info about the above images. I did considerable PS work on them, including sharpening, contrast and color correction. I don't find the images right out of the camera particularly sharp, for my taste, specially when shooting bikes. Cheers, S
