    Has anybody used the Panny 20mm on any of the PENs and can comment on the chromatic aberration observed in JPGs?

    My 20 is 'glued' to my E-P2. As a bonus you get IBIS (it lacks OIS).

    Here too. I bought the EP2 with 14-42mm 2 months ago and a few weeks later the 20mm Pany which has not left the body since. It's a truly magnificent lens!

    E-PL1 and the 20mm

    Use it quite often on my E-PL1 and have quite a few photos to prove it which you can see on the https://www.mu-43.com/f42/e-pl1-image-thread-1590/, my Flickr pages, or here:

    As for chromatic abberation, I'm too ignorant to notice.:biggrin:

    Ha! That's pretty much me too - stuff like that's gotta be pretty bad for me to even notice it and even then only when I'm REALLY looking. I actually saw some CA off toward the edges of one of my test shots with the 9-18 when I first got it, but I was pixel peeping after comments from some other folks and that's what it took to see it. It certainly didn't hurt the photograph for the way actual human beings look at photography.

    Haven't noticed any flaws with the 20mm Pany at all. Great lens. I wouldn't say its glued to my camera - I definitely find uses for the other lenses, but its become my favorite and primary default lens.

    One of the things I love about the 20mm f1.7, is that it's optically excellent (unlike the other m4/3rds lenses which rely sometimes heavily on software correction)... it seems to be made for the Olympus PEN.
