Do you need the aperture or smaller size?
In reply to QuakeO, 11 months ago

I own both the Sigma 19mm f/2.8 and the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7. I tend to use the Panasonic more because it is smaller and brighter, but from f/2.8 onward the optical performance is very close between the two lenses.  If you don't need the larger aperture opening and/or size of the pancake, go for the Sigma option.  If you do need the aperture and/or size, it's up to you to judge how much those features are worth.
