The 20 mm is a nice lens, but be aware some people reported visible lines when using the lens witrh high iso (3200 and beyond). It seems to be an interference problem, Oly has acknowledged the problem and is looking for a solution.

A new oly 17mm 1.8 seems to be on its way, similar to the 12 mm in build and quality.

There are several other options; the pana 25 mm 1.4 gets excellent reports, there are cheap sigma's (19 and 30 mm, both 2.8) that seem to do well too.

I use the 12mm and 45 mm as my 'small' set, with de digital tele converter and the 12 mm for a middle lens. Waiting for the new 17 mm so see how it does before deciding on any in-between lens.
