I'm an extreme beginner to photography so technical words confuse me. I'm looking for a lens that is good for both everyday use and for pictures from the top of mountains. Is this a good landscape and everyday use lens?
Asked by: Kevin L.
This lens will be great for landscape photography. It may be a little wide for every day use, but can be used for other applications like street photography as well. You may want to get a lens closer to 35mm or 50mm for every day use.

Can I use it on Olympus E-420? Will AF work?Thanks.
Asked by: Nikola A.
The Olympus E-420 has the four thirds mount while the Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 II ASPH. Lens has the micro four thirds mount. So this lens would not be compatible with the E-420. You could use the Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm f/2.8 Lens on your E-420.
