On the GF1 the continuous autofocus isn't supported for the 20mm, so it is somewhat better out of the gates on the OM-D

That's a good point. I forget that you can't even do AF-C with it on the GF1 (although I am often reminded when I try to switch to that mode).

As far as regular AF-S autofocus goes, would you say the 20mm is a bit quicker to focus on the OM-D, worse, or about the same as the GF1? I've read the other thread where people mention they have experienced occasional lock-ups using the 20mm that are resolved by removing the battery, and the suggestions that manufacture dates and firmware versions might have an impact. I bought mine in January of 2010 and have never updated the firmware.
