The Panasonic Micro 4/3rds 20mm f1.7 LUMIX G pancake lens is based on the Micro Four Thirds System standard. It is both compact and lightweight despite its large f/1.7 brightness which creates a beautiful soft focus and makes your photos even more impressive. Comprising 7 lenses in 5 groups, the lens system uses 2 aspherical lenses to minimise distortion and chromatic aberrations (colour fringing), achieving high resolution corner to corner. The versatile 20mm focal distance (40mm in 35mm camera terms) is suitable for a wide variety of occasions from daily snapshots including sunsets and dimly lit indoor shots to the deliberately creative shots taking advantage of its 7 bladed circular aperture which offers a beautiful soft focus effect. When mounted on the LUMIX G Micro System Cameras, the LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 lens allows the use of the advanced contrast AF system, including the Face Recognition function, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting.

Good low light lens

Comments about Panasonic 20mm f1.7 LUMIX G Micro Four Thirds Pancake lens:
This lens is really good for taking pictures in low light situation without a flash, I'm able to take quicker shots in low light, the pictures come out bright with no blur since I'm able to use faster shutter speed.I'm using Lumix GX1.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Superb image quality
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
This is a superb walkabout lens, although it is only a little smaller than the kit lens, it is small enough to carry round in a large pocket,.The image quality is superb, and of course its is a fast f1.7 lens ideal for low light.
20mm Lumix G F1.7 lens
This is a great lens for street photography and makes the camera much easier to carry. It also gives the camera a much improved low light capability. I doubt whether I shall make much use of the kit lens now.There is some minor vignetting at full aperture but this is easily remedied in a decent photo editor.

I bought this to go with my new Olympus OMD-E5. It's a great lens, very sharp and very small, allowing the camera and lens to fit into a (reasonably sized) pocket. The quality to price ratio is excellent.

Almost a 'must have'
By Doctor H
Bought this lens to go with my PEN Mini (E-PM1). It virtually lives on my camera now. It has better image quality than the kit 14-42mm lens (though that isn't a bad lens by any means), and can be used wide open with great results. The 20mm has transformed my indoor and low light photography, I rarely use flash any more. The focus speed isn't lightning quick like the newer lenses (including the 14-42mm) and is noisier, but it isn't bad and is much quieter than most of the lenses on my E-3 DSLR. The focal length is the equivalent of 40mm on full frame and is great for general purpose, walk-around photos and group shots, though you will get some distortion if you frame single-person head & shoulder portraits. Highly recommended as the first lens to buy if you want to improve on your kit zoom lens.

Good resistance to flare
from Bexley, Kent
I bought this to use on my G1. It has excellent sharpness and the best resistance to flare of any lens I have used. You can shoot straight into the sun and it copes magnificently. Manual focus was extremely unpredictable and unreliable until I upgraded the firmware altlhough this wasn't listed in the bugs fixed by this upgrade - definitely worth upgrading the firmware on this lens. The only area where it performs badly is light fall-off, vignetting is quite a problem if used at maximum aperture.
