Hi Folks, My 45mm arrived today, and I promptly stuck it on the nose of the G1 and headed outside. I noticed it was not only hunting for focus at close range, but simply not focusing at all on many occasions, even though it would signal that it had focused. I thought I might have finally hit the wall with my aging G1 body, and so put it on the GF1, better, but lots more of the same at close range. I'm not too close, or inside the limits, I can switch to manual focus and be right on the money. I'm wondering if I may have a bad copy, or just a problem with my Panasonic bodies being 1st gen. The images, when properly focused, are quite beautiful and just as expected after seeing others images taken with the 45. Nice bokeh, good crispness, even wide open, wonderful color rendition. But trying to focus on some nice bright red peppers in the garden was impossible, not difficult, impossible. It actually seems better inside in lower, less contrasty light. Objects more distant focus very quickly, no different than using the 14mm or the 20 give or take an instant or two. I might make a visit to Hunts and mount it on a newer body. Any ideas?
