Thanks, was waiting for the price of this to come down. Great lens.
Do you think there will be better deals around BlackFriday or closer to xmas?
I doubt it. This particular lens has been so popular most places run out the moment they have stock, so any BF deals are most likely on other lenses. No reason for any vendor to blow this out since they can even sell this at MSRP.

I have had this lens for a few months, and it has quickly become the default lens on my camera. Really sharp, very fast (f/1.7). If you have a micro four-thirds camera and want a good prime lens that gives you that standard-wide angle of view, you can't go wrong.
$305 is a great price, the best I've ever seen on this. Lenses also generally hold their value very well, so if you use this for a few years and want to resell, it should still fetch a very good price.
I went for the more expensive Panasonic/Leica 25/1.4, which had a price drop 2 weeks back. I like the size and wide angle of the 20mm but I just can't stand the noise and slowness of AF. If compact size is important to you and you don't care too much for fast AF and you don't do a lot of video, then this is an excellent deal. Ebay is selling them for around $250 for used so $305 new with 1yr warranty is awesome. Like someone said, invest in lens as they keep their value well. Also, it is the lens that is more important than the camera. I would recommend the 25/1.4 if you can afford it as it is a fantastic lens. My favorite of the m43 right now. Saving up for the Oly 45/1.8 to complete 14/2.5, 25/1.4 set of prime.
