The firmware update is suppose to help with this issue with Panasonic lenses, I believe.  You might want to give it a try and see if it helps.  Also helps with some banding issues with the Panasonic 20 mm lens at high ISO.


maybe it helps, but it doesn't fix.

Unlucky I can confirm to you that even with firmware 1.5 these issues are still present (and are not mentioned as solved in the firmware release notes too).

As per my direct experience the 20mm still exibit noticeable banding at high iso and the Panasonic lenses are effected by a variety of more or less annoying issues like rattlesnake noises, AF quirks, occasional camera freezes, and burst rate decrease due to slow iris actuator speed stopping down.

For more details, you can look at several consecutive post I wrote here:
