A fast, versatile lens.
I wanted a fast lens to take pictures of family and friends indoors, using available ambient light, and it performs beautifully! So far I've mainly shot pairs and groups, but found for individual portraits I've wanted something a little longer, like the Olympus 45mm. The 20mm is also great for street shots, even wide open, and enables me to shoot from the hip. The size makes it (jacket) pocketable and a convenient, unobtrusive kit.
Compact, fast with great image quality
This panasonic lens delivers great photographs in a very compact package. With a focal length of 20mm (35mm equivalent 40mm) and a maximum aperture of f1.7 makes this lens great for indoors and other low light situations. The only negative I can muster is that it does not do HD video. If you are looking for a MFT prime lens this is a must consider option.
very good size excellent sharp results but slow focus
very high quality optics but unfortunately disappointing autofocus performance. this lens is very sharp but if you get to focus it in time. not good for taking kids pictures. excellent bookeh and very good size.
Nice lens, heavier than I would have expected. The finishing is amazing tho. About the technical part of the lens, the range of aperture is impressive and most of the time you don't need to rich the limit of it.
The best first prime lens to purchase.
A Very good quality lens. Not only its quality build is outstanding but the glass is of real fine quality producing phenomenal images. For someone looking for a great first prime lens, I would definitely recommend this lens. As it is 20mm, this lens produces a nice wide angle and is of great use for all kinds of shoots. I have come to find that during the use of this lens, the MF ticks all the boxes. The MF feels good to the hands and is quite smooth when operating. The AF is also very nice when in use, its quick and precise. Overall, I highly rate this lens, it is definitely a lens that works for every scenario extremely well.
