    Pan Lumix 20 1.7 on Oly E-P1

    Any problems using the Panasonic 20 f/1.7 asph on the EP-1?

    I'm seeing very good prices on the Oly E-P1, including the 14-42 for $650. Seems like a good price for the Oly with lens. Add the Pan 20 1.7 for a nice travel kit.

    Thoughts on this lens combo - and pricing?

    agree entirely ... added to that the EP has IS and the Pana 20 don't, I say for $650 for the kit (plus whatever you've gotta pay for the 20) you've got a winner there me lad

    ohh ... and btw



    lovely image there squire ... ohh for a couple of days in there with my 4x5 a changing bag and a box of ADOX film

    A nice camera and lens combo, especially since Olympus did its last firmware update and slashed the AF time (mind you, I use the lens at night and with MF a lot).



    Does OK during the day too...

    It's a fantastic choice. The 20 almost lives on my E-P1.

    It's a great combo. I have the 17 also but the 20 has been on the camera for a looooong time....it's magic in any circumstance......
