Didn't read all of the responses, but the 20mm is a nice go anywhere lens due to it's size. In some cases I would rather have the 20mm on, sans grips for a very small and powerful package.

I agree - if I'm only going to bring one lens I usually end up with the 20mm. It's small , light and looks in-suspicious so that the 'targets' doesn't feel intimidated. I also think the 40mm equiv FOV feels very natural.

The big disadvantage with it is of course the (relatively speaking) slow focus.
