Just to make it clear, I'm wondering if the 20mm can effectively replace the PL25 in most if not all of my uses.

That's exactly what previous dozens of 20 vs 25mm threads were about. One of these is still on the first page of this forum. And your needs are not unique, in fact they are pretty much common.

I stopped arguing about this few months ago because I can't repeat myself that many times. These lenses are very different. One doesn't replace another.

Only you can answer this question because the answer depends on your overall priorities and how bad you need extra $200.

I suggest asking this question: Has anyone sold 25mm F1.4 lens for 20mm lens and became happier? Otherwise you will be overwhelmed with too many different opinions (that is if others haven't become tired discussing this topic).
