I borrowed the 20mm - liked it a lot

Then I bought the 25mm - and liked it a lot as well

I missed the small size of the 20mm though and have bought that as well now ...

I would rather not upgrade the camera if it meant getting rid of one or the other of these lenses - for me they are complementary....

As you suggested yourself if the 25mm gets in the way now and again then I think its a good idea to buy the 20mm AS WELL.  I think you will find yourself using both lenses quite alot.  If not there is a simple answer ...  sell the one you don't use...

Then save up for the EM5... by the time you have saved half the money the OMD will have come down in price to meet you.  Job done...

If you thought the G3/25mm combo was too bulky sometimes, then the Nikon D5100, even with the 35mm f/1.8, is going to be even bulkier I would have thought ???....
