    I own an E-pl1, and I recently bought a second hand GF1 + 20mm pancake.

    I have a problem when I use de 20mm into the E-PL1 when I try to focus to the sky or the sun, in a sunshine day... it seems that It can't focus, and finally, the camera stays for two, three or more seconds not responding.... after that, it returns the control....
    When I try to focus exactly the same place with de GF1, it takes a long time to focus, but finaly can get focused. I can feel that is still difficult to focus with de gf1 in that situation.
    In other situations in the shadow, inside home, no problems with GF1 and E-PL1. And focuses very quick.

    It seems that in a dificult situations to focussing, the GF1 can do it slow, but the E-PL1, just can not.

    I have to say, that I haven't tryed to update anything with the e-pl1 with lens attached... don't know if this can help....

    So, If somebody has the same problem, please tell me.

    Sorry about my poor english!!! thanks!

    maybe you need to run the updates in the camera or the lens , but remember is very bright to focus to the sun or brights areas ,,, the sensor may get confuse

    good luck
