    A colleague has just returned from the US and brought with him my 20mm Pancake lens order from B+H.

    It's every bit as good as I'd read and hoped. I'm sure it's going to be the default lens on my GF1.

    I'm off to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in a couple of weeks and the combination of its slim form factor and wide aperture will be ideal for product shots in the halls.

    Also bought am Op/Tech sling to carry it on.

    Oh I'm sure it is, and if I had bottomless pockets and spare cash then I'd order one.

    But I don't :)

    So for now at least, I'll have to make do with the 20mm.

    You gotta pot of gold there. I'm waiting for my 46 mm leica lookalike slotted hood to arrive for mine.

    The 20mm has become one of my all time favorite lenses... ever.
