I have the 14mm, the 20mm and the 25mm.

My regular goto lens is the 20mm, I find it suits perfectly with my New G3 camera or older GF2. I Love the small size, large aperture, FOV, and sharpness of the lens. This lens is the M43 holy grail to me.

As many have pointed out the focusing is a little slower then the others, but ok for me in most cases. My biggest issue with the lens is videouse, the focusing sound is very noticable with the internal mics.

The 14 or the 25 I use when I have some more spesific needs. The 14mm for architecture or other times when wider fov is needed and the 25 more for isolating certain people or objects as I find the bokeh great.

They are all different enough to not be sold.
