    Tried searching, couldn't find anything, and didn't see a sample gallery for this lens. I understand the IQ is phenomenal, and the focal length is right ... I need something wider than the 20 and faster than f/4, so until the m43 bright zoom comes out, this might be a good option.

    Will it AF (slowly, or at all)?

    Its a great lens one of the best its heavy tho' its IQ is phenomenal up with Canon L glass and way better than any Leica zoom
    It wont AF on my G1 or GF1 .. slow but ok on Pen bodies
    It may AF on newer GX bodies

    Real Name:
    My 12-60 does AF on the GH2. But it's very very slow. The 14-54(I) is also very slow on the GH2. Fastest native Oly 4/3 so far on the GH2 is the 14-42 in my tests. 25 pancake was fast, but it missed focus half of the time.

    Maybe the 14-54(II) would AF faster, but I never owned one of those.

    I have read that the Panleica 14-50/3.8-5.6 does AF on the GH2 quite well. Maybe David (aka Soundimageplus) can chime on the Panleica. Thanks!
