Re: I feel misled: Panasonic 20mm f1.7 II AF is SO SLOW!

Nice Anders,

When someone whether the 20mm f1.7 AFs fast enough, you state yes.

When someone asks whether the 20mm f1.7 AFs as fast as the 17mm, you state yes, UNDER general conditions.

So great; you win. Just don't go about commenting that you don't feel there's an issue with the AF of the 20mm f1.7 when others clearly feel so.

Oh wait, you need to have 'controlled' tests as a basis of confirmation.  Or else whoever states such a claim is speaking ballyhoo and your 'controlled' tests should be more accurate.

Even though you are already stating under YOUR needed conditions it works.  Or when you haven't had a chance to try out the 17mm f1.8.

And FYI, I have had the 17mm f1.8 and the 20mm f1.7 hand in hand.  And so unlike you, I am pretty sure which one focuses faster. Clearly under ALL conditions.  THEN I sold it.

Oh wait, YOU need evidence. So I should go and record the whole process.

Do expand your test environments.
