Featuring a high-speed F1.7, this single-focal-length lens lets you capture beautiful, expressive images with a delicate soft focus and high contrast. The versatile 20 mm of focal distance (Equivalent to 40 mm on a 35 mm film camera) is suitable for wide variety of occasions from daily snapshots to the deliberately creative shots taking advantage of its beautiful soft focus.

The LUMIX G 20 mm / F1.7 II ASPH. features a dramatic compactness and light weight despite its F1.7 brightness. With this thin, pancake lens mounted, the LUMIX G is easy to carry around. You're always ready for whatever inspires the photographer inside you – everyday scenes, passing landscapes, indoor shots in dim lighting, casual snapshots, or artistic shots.

The sophisticated metallic-finished look of the LUMIX G 20 mm / F1.7 II ASPH. increases the joy of ownership and further enhances LUMIX G cameras.

Comprising of seven lenses in five groups, the lens system uses two aspherical lenses most effectively to minimize both distortion and chromatic aberrations, achieving super high resolution corner to corner. Seven blades give the aperture a rounded shape that produces an attractively smooth effect in out-of-focus areas when shooting at larger aperture settings. This lens also features a highly reliable metal mount, and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its optical performance.

When mounted on the LUMIX G cameras, the LUMIX G 20 mm / F1.7 II ASPH. allows use of the advanced contrast AF system, which includes a Face Recognition function, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting.

The Panasonic Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 II with a redesigned styling and metal parts, and this gives a very slight improvement in resistance to flare, as well as a slight improvement in contrast.

I bought this lens to put on my GX80 Lumix camera for street photography mainly. It certainly does the job, very discreet to use and gives great quality images. I note some comments about slow auto focus, and while it is not instantaneous like some lenses, it's fast enough for my needs.

I bought this lens several years ago, traded it in, regretted it and have just bought the mark ii version. It's compact, and sharp wide open. For travel I use this with my Panasonic 12-32 pancake lens and an Olympus E-M10.

My OM-D outfit was purchased as a low weight complement to my Nikon kit and is based around lightweight zooms which are very good but lacking in ultimate sharpness and speed. The 20mm F1.7 is a brilliant addition for when I need a compact, candid shooting or low light quality optic.

Good quality fixed focus lens. It matches the Panasonic Lumix GX8 nicely for size and weight, giving a good street and general photography outfit with a focal length similar to human eye.

I use this lens when travelling with a one body, one lens combo, as it's fast, reliable, and I find the 40mm (equivalent) focal length a great halfway between a wide angle and portrait lens.

As much as I wanted to love this lens I ended up selling it. I used it on an OM-D E-M10 and it is sharp, amazingly so. The thing that made it unusable for me was the chromatic aberrations. They were so bad that correcting them in Lightroom caused quite severe artefacts elsewhere in the photos.
