    Looks like they wrote it two years ago, too. they called it fast focusing! (its not bad, but not as fast as the newer lenses)

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

    All older equipment is immediately inferior and rendered redundant when a new cooler product arrives. Most of them stop working and go sulk in the corner.

    Did you guys not get the memo???

    :rofl:

    Okay.... so I am just being greedy when I wish for an updated 20/1.7 that focuses super fast and quiet? I think so.

    I am kind of wondering if an updated lens is in process with the 20 being one of the few lenses that missed out on the recent Pana HD firmware updates.

    Update 20 would be nice. I was looking through my photos, and in a 2:1 margin Ive got more 20mm keepers than my next most used lens (the 14-150). Of course, the 14-150 + 20mm is a smashing travel kit.
