E-PL2 and 12mm f/2.0 or E-P3 and 20mm f/1.7

Ok, finally ready to make my final decision before a big Europe trip, and need everyone's advice:

Should I buy for roughly the same price the new 12mm Oly f/2.0 and E-PL2 or the E-P3 and Panny 20mm f/1.7? I would get the kit lens with both, but I prefer shooting primes. I have been using the second set the past two days (E-P3 and have loved how quick and responsive the AF is), but want to know if the 12mm improves the AF of the E-PL2? I would rather spend money on glass and these are both great options. I would probably get the 12mm down the road for the E-P3 when I could afford it, as well as trading up the 20mm to the 25mm leica/panny. Any real world experiences on shooting the 12mm on the E-PL2? What is a better spend of my money???
