Do you LIKE the 20mm field of view? If so, get the 20mm provided:

- the distortion doesn't faze you, you know how to use distortion controls in your favorite program.

- the aperture of the 20mm is as wide as you need.

- you don't plan to make huge enlargements.

If you don't like the 20mm FOV for most items and don't shoot moving objects, you could try the 24mm and take overlapping shots, stitching them in processing.
