Does the greater AF speed of the new 20mm f1.7 show itself during video capture? My old version has the annoying habit of hunting during video. Tom

The new version has exactly the same AF mechanism as the old and is likely to work equally poorly for video. For ordinary AF-S usage with stills, it has no problem with AF speed. But if you use it with video in AF-C, it doesn't work well because the lens is not designed for AF-C in the first place. On my G1, the body won't even allow the lens to enter AF-C mode.
