[Edit] I'll have to do some research. I don't know if the lens would use that adapter per say...but right idea. Thx!

I sent the 20mm back to Amazon this morning. After shooting with it on my EPL1 this past w/e I decided that the two don't get along at all (unless shooting in low light conditions). Most of the time I had to reduce the exposure by +1.0 (or more in some cases) in order to preserve the highlights and as a result, I got tons of very dark images. Very disappointing. I'm very curious as to how many people have experienced the same exact problem but don't dare to say anything because the 20mm is supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread. The Oly 17mm worked much better on my EP1 than the 20mm does on the EPL1. Unfortunately, I sold it because I wanted the 20mm once the price was right.

The question, as you mentioned, is why the camera over exposes so much with one lens but not the other? The EPL1 has great DR with the kit lens (or the Lumix 45-200mm, which impressed the heck out of me) but struggled with the 20mm. Maybe the 20mm is an excellent performer in low light but not as good in high contrast conditions.

What is the difference between this lens and the Tokina SD 28-70mm?
