I think the Lumix 20mm f/1.7 lens is better than the Sigma 19mm in all aspects, except for the AF speed and noise, and the price.

I have made some comparisons between them here:

I've found the Sigma 30mm lens to be better than the Sigma 19mm lens in terms of image quality. This is not very surprising: A longer lens is easier to design than a wide lens:

If AF speed and noise is important for you, you can consider then Sigma lenses. Otherwise, I think the Lumix G 20mm lens is better.
