I tried the 19mm Sigma on a GX1 and wasn't too impressed. It's a decent value, but IMO, too much distortion and a bit bulky. I'd rather get one great lens than 2 good lenses. The 20/1.7 is a great lens. Plus, f1.7 is a whole stop faster, and on a smalller sensor it makes for a big difference in DOF and bokeh. Also, it's much better optically, and about half the size of the Sigmas. The only thing better on the Sigmas is the AF speed. Other than that, the 20/1.7 has always been a stellar and highly reputable lens.

Not only the speed, but the sound.  The 20mm 1.7 is very noisy lense, making AF during video inadvisable.

The Sigmas AF very quietly.
