Roger Cicala goes Grey's Anatomy on the Panasonic Pancaces

Today i learned there is a giant spring inside the Panasonic 20mm lens:

"The spring has something to do with the fact that the lens assembly extends for close focusing. Whether it helps the motor move the lens, or the motor only moves the lens back and the spring moves it forward, I can’t say. But if you put the lens back together without the spring, it doesn’t focus. (Pretty simple way to figure it out, huh?)" . . . read more

Hard choice, this, or the 20mm f1.7?

"The LUMIX G 14mm F2.5 ASPH lens offers virtually silent focusing which is internal, so the lens never changes length. In use, we have also found the system surprisingly quick on the DMC-G2, and it should be potentially even faster on the DMC-GH2.

Manual focusing is possible in a focus-by-wire fashion. This should not put you off using it as it feels pretty natural in use, and actually enables the camera to display a magnified view of the subject automatically, i.e. without your having to press
