I have never been able to understand the complaints on this forum and in this thread about slow AF with the 20mm. I have had mine for several years, and it has always been fine.


That is probably because you know how to use the 20/1.7 pancake.  Apparently others also know how to use it.  Some of them have contributed to this thread.

OTOH, some folks blame their equipment, or worse, other contributors, for their inability to maximize the strengths and minimize the weaknesses of a particular piece of gear.

I use that lens a lot at indoor social functions, with no problems, but I don't go from very close subjects to distant ones in one jump, or vice versa.  Nice lens, (in spite of its noisiness).
