When I read that Panasonic was working on a successor to its Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens (which I've owned almost since its release), I was excited. After all, the original was exceptional; how do you improve on such a solid product?

Initial reviews implied that, well, they *didn't* improve on it. This refresh was cosmetic, and the lens was identical optically. I decided to take a pass.

That was, of course, until my E-PM1 (with the original lens attached) went for an unexpected journey on the roof of my car. Suffice it to say it ended well for neither camera nor lens, and when I went to replace the 20mm I discovered that the new version was cheaper than the old. An easy enough decision!

What follows is by and large my original review. Really, the only things that have changed are appearance and the weight, and those only in vanishingly small ways. The lenses are otherwise, as near as I can tell, functionally identical. I've tested this lens on a GF3 and on the E-M5.

****

First off, this lens really is wonderfully compact - it's physically a perfect match for small bodies. There are smaller pancake lenses of similar focal lengths (the Panasonic Lumix 14mm f/2.5 and the Olympus 17mm f/2.8), but neither are as bright; I think the 20mm hits the sweet spot.

Hey what’s up everyone, my name’s Chris Winter and today I’m going to take a look at what has become one of my all time favourite lenses, the Panasonic 20mm 1.7.
I've been using this lens for about a year now and have absolutelyy fallen in love with it’s image quality and size.
And if you haven’t seen it yet guys, make sure to check out my top 5 best value micro fours thirds lenses list. I’ll put a link in the description box below so go and check it out.

Let’s first take a look at the build quality of this lens.
When you first pick up the panasonic 20mm 1.7, you’ll definitely notice just how small it is. Even though the lens does have a very wide 1.7 aperture, Panasonic has been able to keep it down to a tiny size.
There’s not a whole lot of plastic on this lens either, with a metallic body and metal mount on the rear, it does feel like it’s going to hold up well to years of use.
On the front we have a beautiful focus ring which is incredibly smooth to turn. I really love it. There's no image stabilisation on the lens or a manual focus switch, but that's because it's actually got full time manual focus, which is a nice touch.

Before I used the 20mm 1.7, my favorite focal lensht was a 50mm on a full frame body. But that's all changed now and it’s now 20mm. That equates to about 40mm on these bodies and it's a great field of view for most shots.
Just so you can get an idea of what that focal length is. Here what 20mm looks like. And just for comparison, this is what 12mm looks like on a micro four thirds body and here is what 32mm looks like.
So for me, it's a very happy medium at 20.

Let's now talk about bokeh, or the background blur behind your subject.

Optically, this lens is considered identical to its predecessor, so read those reviews to learn about image quality. The only real difference is that this new version uses more metal and less plastic, which makes it a bit smaller but heavier (it's still very light). And it's available in silver.

The video review is shot through this lens. It doesn't have much except a demonstration of focus speed and noise, and a few sample photographs (Amazon never published the photo I uploaded, maybe because it wasn't a photo of the product).

There were basically only two complaints ever made about the previous model: (1) focusing was noisy and slow, and (2) noise banding in the shadows on Olympus bodies. I can't speak to the second because I only have a Panasonic body (G6). As for the first, I can only say that focusing is definitely louder and slower than my kit lens (the new version of the 14-42mm zoom), but I probably wouldn't have even noticed the noise if I wasn't specifically looking for it. It seems pretty quiet to me, a relative beginner. Recording video using the built-in microphones on the G6, there is a tiny bit of noise captured, but I barely notice it (I'll demonstrate in a video review). I would use a separate audio recorder if I was going for maximum quality anyway.

Panasonic's official but unstated position seems to be that this lens doesn't need a hood. Panasonic doesn't make one that fits on it, nor is there any way to attach one aside from the filter threads. I went ahead and got a cheap screw-in one, but so far I haven't been able to tell the difference.
