Panasonic Lumix 20mm f1.7

This a comment for this page on the website
It seems a shame that arguably THE most impressive lens ever produced by Panasonic for the m4/3 lens mount is the 20mm f1.7. Not only is it a stellar performer but it was the first fast normal lens which effectively made the m4/3 system more attractive to photographers. Your list of "BEST" for GH3 and OM-D features quite a few poor lenses but strangely not the Pana 20mm f1.7. Why is this exactly? Go ahead and rate version II, but your readers in years to come would I'm sure be interested in seeing the first version in you archive.

One other point is that the lenses on the GH3 seem to have mostly the same rating as the GH2. Very interesting.

As well as omitting Panasonic's own 20mm F1.7, you somehow managed to review the 30mm and 60mm Sigma F2.8 lenses but omit the Sigma 19mm F2.8, which in its original form also got very good reviews elsewhere.

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

The 20mm f/1.7 II is definitely in the road map  ;). However we will try to get hand on the first version too.

Best regards,
