26 September 2011
  • Conclusion: The Lumix G 20mm F1.7 ASPH is a lens that we've been looking forward to seeing for real ever since Panasonic first showed a mock-up back at Photokina 2008 . The good news is that it's been well worth the wait - the 20mm is an excellent lens, especially considering its tiny size.
  • Pros: Extremely small size and light weight - the perfect match for the E-P1 and GF1, Fast maximum aperture, Impressive image quality at all apertures, Good build quality, proper manual focus ring and non-rotating front element
  • Cons: Comparatively expensive (at least at launch), No lens hood

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 ASPH is an interesting little being. The center image quality is nothing short of phenomenal. The borders are slightly worse but still very good level and that's straight from f/1.7.

  • Excerpt: Originally posted 2010-08-16 on Optyczne.pl In my opinion the possibility of using small, mirrorless cameras with tiny „pancake” lenses is their biggest asset. It seems that the producers of this type of equipment at least partially share that opinion because every company which offers such cameras...

  • Summary: Cienki obiektyw prezentuje się bardzo elegancko. Warto podkreślić wykorzystanie metalowego bagnetu w konstrukcji. Praca ze szkłem jest przyjemna, w czym zasługa pierścienia ostrości, który jest szeroki i ma lekki opór. Autofokus działa sprawnie, ale nie jest cichy.
  • Pros: + bardzo dobra jakość obrazu w centrum kadru, + dobra jakość obrazu na brzegach kadru, + szybki autofokus, + metalowy bagnet, + niewielkie gabaryty
  • Cons: - głośny autofokus, - widoczna aberracja w rogach kadru, - widoczna winieta, - odlaski
