This 20mm f1.7 lens from Panasonic offers extreme versatility to Micro Four Thirds users, with its pancake-style size and 40mm equivalent focal length, which falls on the wider side of “normal”. Lenses within this normal range are usable in a wide range of applications including landscapes, portraits, interiors and other everyday shooting styles. The large f1.7 aperture rating lets in plenty of light for low-light shooting and also aides in the creation of excellent background blur.

  • 35mm equivalent focal length: 40mm
  • Fast f1.7 aperture for handheld shooting
  • 7-Blade rounded aperture diaphragm
  • Speedy contrast AF system
  • Aspherical lens elements for the reduction of chromatic aberration and distortion

A “normal” pancake lens for Micro Four Thirds

With a 40mm equivalent focal length inside a tiny pancake-style package, this Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens is the perfect take everywhere lens, able to capture high quality images in a range of circumstances, but barely protruding from the front of your camera. Compatible with the Micro Four Thirds mount, this prime lens fits in nicely with the sleek and lightweight Compact System range that it is a valuable part of.

A fast maximum aperture rating, suited to producing beautiful bokeh

Pairing a large f1.7 maximum aperture rating with a 7-blade rounded aperture diaphragm, the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens offers high-quality out-of-focus areas, perfect for adding a new level of sophistication to your images. With this level of wide-open performance, you will be very tempted to always shoot at maximum aperture and continue to capture beautiful sharp images with stunning bokeh - time and time again.
This fast aperture rating is also excellent for gifting you with exceptional confidence when shooting handheld, even after the sun has gone down, or inside darkened interiors. This lens is able to let in heaps of light, which allows for faster shutter speeds and subsequently, consistently sharp images, free from camera-shake.

Constructed with care - every last detail

This tiny and lightweight lens has been constructed for consistent use, packaged inside a rugged metal casing and including a metal mount. Able to find the perfect balance between road-ready and unobtrusive, Panasonic have designed a lens that is asking to be taken everywhere with you, and is made strong enough for you to not worry too much about it being damaged.
Optically the lens has also been constructed with a supreme level of care, featuring a makeup that includes two Aspherical lens elements, which are in place to limit the effects of chromatic aberration and distortions, and to ensure image excellence. Elements have been multi-coated to eliminate the other common detriments, Flare and Ghosting. Overall, this is one little lens that offers a level of excellence far greater than its size would suggest.
