Panasonic Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 II Overview

Characterized by its slender profile, the black Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 II ASPH. from Panasonic is a compact, slightly wide 40mm equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Its bright f/1.7 maximum aperture offers notable control focus for working with shallow depth of field techniques and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements to suppress spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness and accurate rendering, and individual elements have also been multi-coated to control surface reflections and flare for improved contrast in strong lighting conditions.

Slightly wider-than-normal prime is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and offers a 40mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.7 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords greater control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
Two aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize greater sharpness and resolution.
Individual elements have been multi-coated to effectively reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.
Autofocus motor supports camera's contrast detection for precise focusing performance. AF can also be manually overridden for more fine-tuned control.
Pancake form factor measures just 1"-thick, making it ideal for everyday and travel use.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

What’s the difference between this lens and the original 20mm f1.7?
Asked by: Sergey
Hello Sergey, the new model maintains the same optical performance as the original model while boasting an updated metal design that surpasses the plastic components of the previous model. Also, the mass weight of H-H020 is 100 g and H-H020A has a mass weight of 87 g. Hope this helps! -C

question

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.
