    Internal focus now hopefully. Original is still one of the best lens bargains ever.

      the original 20 1.7 lens is why I bought in to the M4/3 system, compact and optically brilliant, to me my GF1 is just the thing that happens to be attached to this little plastic fantastic.

    If they have improved he AF speed and gotten rid of the banding problem I’ll be ordering one.
