    no wonder this lens receives so many good words, it really deserves them. the colour rendition is magical, rich and contrasty, I also love the FL. My friend has a G5 and will test it on the G5, on my EPL5 the focus is fine, on the slow side but that's what we all know. Tried low light, no strong evidence showing banding issue but maybe there is a little with SOOC JPGs, which is totally acceptable.

    OK, here, an ugly selfie, EPL5 20 1.7 ISO 500

    I like the silver lenses. Especially on two tone cameras like the silver EM-5 or black PM2.

    I have the silver EPL5 and I find it very good looking with all my black lenses, and this silver 20 1.7 too. silver lenes usually look a little weird on black bodies but pancakes are always charming :)

    I think silver lenses on black bodies look hot!

    I recieved my silver 20mm vII, yesterday! Holy Contrast! It looks super sexy and performs that way. It is a great fit for my e-pl5, even being a wierd focal length at 40mm it's very close to my field of view. A joy to use.

    what colour is your epl5? I've always loved the FL and to me the 20 and 25 are two quite different lenses
