I think the 20mm.

What about the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm F4.0-5.6? Looks like that one has pretty good reach but the slow speed an lack of AFC on the GH1 body probably rule it out for wildlife shooting. Just thinking out loud here. What's the IQ of that lens like, anyway?

The 70-300 is a very nice lens, both for birds/wildlife and for macros, but remember it has no in-lens IS because Oly puts the IS in the camera not the lenses. For that reason, I usually use mine on my Oly E620 rather than my G1.
