I have one and I agree. If I try to make a movie of moving kids with this lens, the auto focus never catches up. I still use it for less demanding applications.

That could just be a limitation of your camera's continuous AF. This is a well-known weakness of mirrorless cameras. Does your camera handle the same situation significantly better with other lenses? I use single AF when shooting moving subjects and find the 20 a bit slower than my 12-35 but still quite usable.
