I Just got mine too Ben - the biggest shock was the 22mm prime - it`s every bit as good as the Panny 20mm fopr sharpness , but even better edge to edge and faster to focus with less CA ! .. this lens comfortably beats the Fujj X100`s built in lens by quite a margin for edges and of course doesn`t suffer the irritating Focus shift which drove me away from the X100 ........

I really like Panasonic 20mm f/1.7, but I wasn't willing to pay its nearly $400 USD retail price.  Had Panasonic release a GX1 + 20mm f/1.7 for $299 ~ $400, I would have been all over it.

But its too late now, Canon beat M43 by releasing a Fast F/2 Sharp Prime for such a low price.  As much as I like M43, I think I'll be locked into canon eos-m world soon.

I wish Panny + Olympus would wake up and start releasing its m43 camera with a sharp affordable pancake lens for $299 to compete.
