(FT5) Hot! First image of the new 20mm f/1.7 II lens!


The new Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 II lens just leaked in Japan (Digicaminfo). And here are the full specs of the lens that will be announced very soon!

– Seven lenses in five groups. 2 aspherical lens.
– Filter diameter is 46mm
– Total length 25.5mm, maximum diameter 63mm
– 87g Weight
– The exterior Barrel is of metal
– It will come in silver and black
– Estimated retail price of around 40,000 yen

In short: The lens has the same lens design as the previous model although we don’t know yet if the image quality has been improved by using new single lenses. The good news is that Panasonic managed to make the lens even more lighter than the previous version (87g versus the 100g of the older pancake). I am not sure yet btu I think the autofocus performance has been improved too!
