Trivia (XCIV) - Pro Advice

"I’ve had the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 for over three years now and I absolutely LOVE this lens. This is my go to lens when traveling light. I took this lens and my Panasonic GF-1 around Europe for 20+ days as my only camera/lens (I left my 5D and L glass at home) a few years ago and I was never left wanting for another camera/lens. After shooting with the Olympus 17mm f1.8, the Panasonic 20mm does show its age a bit, specifically in terms of autofocus, but I personally do not find the need to “upgrade” to the Olympus 17mm. Some may want more of a 35mm equivalent filed of view, but I find a 40mm field of view to be quite versatile."
