(From Panasonic lens literature) Panasonic is pleased to announce the addition of a new single focal length lens, the LUMIX G 20mm / F1.7 II ASPH (H-H020A) featuring a new metallic profile in the Micro Four Thirds standard. It boasts dramatic compactness and light weight despite its F1.7 aperture that enables beautiful soft focus in the background, allowing the subject to stand out impressively.

Comprised of seven lenses in five groups, the new system uses two aspherical lenses to minimize both distortion and chromatic aberration, achieving incredibly high resolution corner to corner. The versatile 20mm focal distance (equivalent to 40mm on a 35 mm film camera) is suitable for wide variety of photography including scenery such as sunsets and dimly lit indoor shots taking advantage of its beautiful soft focus. It supports the Contrast AF system for high precision auto focusing.

Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in unsharp areas when shooting at large aperture settings. The new LUMIX G 20mm / F1.7 II ASPH. lens also features a highly reliable metal mount, and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its optical performance.

    Small, powerful, simply clever.
    It's not weatherproof. A little faster focusing. And is a bit more plastic, but nothing terrible.

    Small, but very powerful. A dwarf in your pocket! It won't put a strain on your backpack, not even your budget. Could have a little faster focusing. But he's not lazy :-) And is a bit more plastic, it's also not terrible, though. The new lens OM System 20 mm,f/1,4 PRO will probably be better in these parameters, but it will also be three times heavier and twice as expensive. I'm curios to compare the two lenses!

    Unique sharpness; Compact; Lightweight; Less elements: more characteristics; Reasonable price; Nice rendering
    No Weather resistant; Plastic build

    This lens is very solid even it plasticky,
    The image quality produced is acceptable. Itsa sharp in the center and produces little vignetting, distortion or chromatic aberrations. Contrast and color are also very crisp and vivid.
