The second-gen Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras is now in stock and shipping. The first-gen lens was an excellent lens and highly sought after among Micro Four Thirds users. I expect this version to achieve similar status. Check it out in black or silver here at B&H Photo.
Last week, Panasonic quietly introduced an updated 20mm f/1.7 lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. The original version of this lens was well-regarded throughout its lifespan and served as a solid walkaround lens with its 40mm equivalent field of view.
The new 20mm f/1.7 II APSH. lens should be available in black or silver finishes next month for $399. It is currently available for pre-order here at B&H Photo.
