This review is from: Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Pancake Lens for Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens Cameras (OLD MODEL) (Camera)
I bought this lens after owning the GH1 HD for 4 weeks. I have used the lens in all kinds of situations for stills and movies. The lens works very well as a still lens, specifically in dark indoors and outdoors situations. It also works very well for close ups, landscapes and even portraits.

As a lens using the Video features of the GH1, I am not fully convinced. Initially it had issues with the auto focus (running in and out of focus and making lots of noise). With the firm ware upgrade this issue has more or less been resolved, but I find myself putting the 14-140 on for video use.

On other positive about this lens is that all of a sudden you can actually carry the camera and lens installed in the pocket of your coat, your GH1 becomes a shoot and click.

All in all, I would recommend buying the lens if budget allows.
