The new LUMIX G 20mm / F1.7 ASPH. Features a dramatic compactness and light weight despite its F1.7 brightness allowing a beautiful soft focus for photos to be even more impressive.

Might be a dumb question... but...

... are the new M4/3 lenses able to be used on 4/3 bodies...? (with adapter of course!)

No, because the mount to sensor distance is half that of a Four Thirds DSLR. compatibility is only where you fit a Four Thirds lens via an adapter, which acts as a spacer tube, to a MICRO Four Thirds body.
