    Default Panasonic 20mm; When and how much?

    The Panasonic 20mm f1.7 pancake has been on the lens roadmap and constantly seen in mockups ever since the G1 came out, but I still have yet to hear anything about its pricing or availability. On the other hand, other people clearly have better information than I do as I keep hearing about interesting new things (like a 45mm macro?) that I haven't been able to find any other info on.

    Do any of you better-informed people have any idea about the pricing and availability of the 20mm? To be honest, that lens with the E-P1 are what interest me most about m4/3... unless it costs $500+.

    The Lumix G 20mm f/1.7 was shown in prototype at Photokina, PMA and PIE 2009. It is expected to ship later this summer/early fall, rumor has it in conjunction with a compact G system camera.

    The Lumix G 45mm f/2.8 Macro OIS was shown at PIE 2009 in prototype. No rumors as to when it will be available yet.

    Only Panasonic knows for sure on delivery dates and prices.
    I won't speculate.
