    If it's the f/2.8-3.5, the AF is ridiculous slow on the m43 cams.

    IMHO, get your money out of it, and buy the native bright zoom when it comes out soon.

    just to clarify for those interested in the l1 + the lens
    the leica AF is fast on the l1.

    ~tc~ is referring to the autofocus speed of the leica lens if used on another m43 camera body.

    @~tc~ yea it is the 2.8-3.5 leica lens, I was waiting to see how the autofocus speed would be on the gx1 before I committed to selling the lens.

    Doubtful that the AF would ever improve...older lenses are designed for phase detect focus while micro4/3 cameras use contrast detect focus.

    Yes, in case I wasn't clear, this is what I was referring to.

    I use it on my G3, I would expect the GX1 to be the same, but ya never know.

    Note: this lens won't AF at all on my GF1
