What? Can anyone confirm?

if you can read Thai language,see all image new 14-140 II & 20mm f1.7 II(on BOX)

it's feel fast and silent although that cam from Olympus.

There's a problem, though. There are a lot of people who seem to think the 20mm f/1.7 focuses fast enough, sounds quiet enough, it doesn't hunt that much, it's good enough, etc. It's always compared to some arbitrary metric for what "enough" is, as though there isn't any absolute metric for it, though there is. I'd like it to be compared to something I know is fast and quiet and rarely hunts (and when it hunts, it's for maybe half a second): the 17mm f/1.8. That's the only comparison that matters to me. If the 20mm f/1.7 took the same pictures and was as fast as or faster than 17mm f/1.8 AND has a nice metal exterior to boot, I'd switch back in a heartbeat. Until then, it's the same "good enough" and that's of no interest to me.
