The 20mm should be a 30mm equivalent as you say but why is 28mm (a 7% difference) so much more interesting?  Couldn't you just crop it by 7%?

Price wise and in terms of production this should be a better lens than the 16mm.  Perhaps you've got it confused with something else?

You need to expand not crop.

I have always found 30, 35, 50 (35mm equivalent)  to be boring lenses. The results look good for this 20mm, but I will stick with the 16mm.

Anyway, I have a Sigma 20mm f1.8 - now that's a lens!
