Re: Is it still a good time to purchase the Panny 20mm, 1.7 lens? With example.

Have the Oly 45, 40-150, Panny 14 and use various manual focus lenses, but I find myself reaching for the 20mm the most often. It just works in the widest variety of situations (talking about primes, of course) and the quality is always surprising. Matched with my e-pl1, I have an informal casual camera that no one really notices.

I shot this at f5.6 and I probably should have opened the lens a bit more, but I think it gives a good idea of the quality of the lens.
