Compact Lens w/ Large f1.7 Aperture: Perfect for Everyday Shooting

Micro Four Thirds 20mm Single Focal Length Fast Pancake Prime Lens
Featuring the brightness of an f1.7 aperture, this single-focal-length lens lets you capture beautiful, expressive images with a delicate soft focus and high contrast. Two aspherical lenses are perfectly configured to deliver enhanced performance in a compact system.

With this thin pancake lens mounted, the LUMIX G Micro System is easy to carry anywhere. You're always ready for whatever inspires the photographer inside you; everyday scenes, passing landscapes, indoor shots in dim lighting, casual snapshots, or artistic shots with soft focusing.

The smaller the f-number, the shallower the depth of field (the range in which things are in focus); the larger the f-number, the greater the depth of field. This lens, with its bright, fully open f1.7 aperture, lets you capture the desired parts of an image in sharp focus, while giving other parts a soft focus. This makes the subject really stand out, adding a rich expressiveness to your photos.

Features

The versatile 20mm of focal distance (Equivalent to 40mm on a 35 mm film camera) is suitable for wide variety of occasions from daily snapshots including scenery, like sunsets and dimly lit indoor shots to the deliberately creative shots taking advantage of its beautiful soft focus.

A Compact and Lightweight Pancake with Outstanding Brightness
The LUMIX G 20mm / f1.7 ASPH features a dramatic compactness and light weight PanCake Lens design, despite it's f1.7 brightness. This allows a beautiful soft focus on photos so they are even more impressive.

Circular Aperture Diaphragm Promotes Smoothness

feature

All 7 aperture blades comprise a circular aperture diaphragm and produce an attractive smoothness in out-of-focus areas even shooting at large aperture.

Normal Lens Drive Focus Operations
This LUMIX G 20mm / f1.7 Aspherical lens utilizes a lens drive system to realize a compact and bright f1.7 lens. This lens drive system may cause sound and vibration during focusing; this is not a malfunction.

Operating sounds might be recorded when your Camera auto focuses during motion image recording. If this effect is a concern, it is recommended to record with Continuous AF set to OFF. Also, it is not possible to set the focus mode to AFC.

Solid Metal Mount is Compatible with LUMIX G Micro System Cameras
The LUMIX G 2 mm / f1.7 ASPH lens also features a highly reliable metal mount, designed for years and years of use. When mounted on the LUMIX G Micro System Cameras, the LUMIX G 20mm / f1.7 ASPH allows use of the advanced contrast AF system, which includes a Face Recognition function, for more convenient, more enjoyable shooting.

Lens Construction has 7 Elements in 5 Groups with 2 Aspherical Lenses

feature

This new lens system uses two aspherical lenses most effectively to minimize both distortion and chromatic aberrations, achieving super high resolution corner to corner. It also uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its optical performance.
