Panasonic 20mm - good for rapid shooting?


i am looking for a good low light lens to take pictures of my newborn inside. A previous post had recommended the Panasonic 20mm and 25mm or the Olympus 45mm. I was leaning towards the 20mm due to a small house and cost, but was concerned about the autofocus, which I've read is slow in multiple reviews. Since a newborns expressions change so quickly, one thing I like to do is take multiple shots per second just to capture the one I like. Will I be able to do this with the 20mm And it's slow autofocus? Is the slow af mainly a concern for video?

for reference, i currently use an e-pl1 with a 14-42 kit lens.
