I got my 20mm f/1.7 for $269 new and it's a stop and a half faster.

Deal of the century bundled with the GF1 near the end of its run (40,000yen for the pair IIRC)... but the price has gone up since (close to 2x the cost of the Sigma in Japan in fact). To me, of course, the 1.5 stop improvement is the real difference here, that and the package size. Pocket-able, and it overcomes ISO liability in the 1st generation m43 sensors. The 20/1.7 sold me on the system.
