Does GX20 support SDM lens?

Anyone know a quick answer whether the GX20 supports Pentax SDM lens without a firmware upgrade?

it does. My second (first was faulty) did work with SDM even without firmware upgrade.

Thanks so much axl. After posting the query, I did examine the GX20 Mount closely and I located the SDM specific electrical contacts. So with your confirmation and my own verification, I feel comfortable taking delivery of the DA17-70mm SDM. Many thanks, Bob

GX20 does support SDM

Just to make sure the subject is closed definitively, now that I've used the DA17-70 for a few months, I can say the SDM lens motor works like a charm on the GX20. No compatibility issues at all. Cheers, Bob
