Great optics and build quality for the price

While I have used the 20/1.7 for a very long time, it shows its limit when I take on the responsibility to document activities of my son's boy scout troop, which requires me to include more people and what they are doing in the shot.  The lens is well built with a very robust hood.  Beautiful images and a nice bokeh for something this wide.  Too bad I cannot use the aperture ring control on an Olympus camera and for this reason alone, I am considering getting a GX9 ...

It is easy to find this lens used for <$400 on eBay.  Mine is in like new conditions when I got it.
