Pic of GH3 w/Panny 20mm 1.7 on it?

I've seen pix of the Panny 20mm 1.7 on a GH2, but was wondering about the camera-to-lens size ratio when fitted on the slightly larger GH3.

Could someone share a pic of what a GH3 looks like wearing the Panny 20mm? Just curious, and thanks in advance!

That's a neat site, thanks for linking it. Anyone who thinks the GH3 is some huge massive camera ought to try that out with the 100-300mm attached.

Hi. Assuming you may have had a GH1 and/or GH2 with your 20mm, have you noticed any AF improvements in the lens when it is attached to the GH3, photos/video, AFS/AFC? Thanks!

I've used the 20 f/1.7 with GH1, GH2 and GH3 (and a GX1). I've noticed no camera-related focusing issues with any of these bodies (using the single focus area, centered, with the smallest size box). However, the mechanics of the 20 f/1.7 seem to make for longer focus times when going from close in to faraway targets. So, for example, with street photography focus speed has never been a concern for me.

Thanks for that. I remember renting a 20mm for my GH1 for a wedding (videography), and noticed the AFC was slow, and for some street photography as well it felt slow-ish, as well as the general opinion of the 20mm being a slow AF lens. I suppose for your style of shooting, you don't seem to run into any problems, but I wanted to ask as I've been reading that certain lenses are focusing faster on the GH3 which I just bought.
