I try to buy a pancake lens. Could any pro tell me which one is better for em5?

I'm not a pro but let me answer your question.

The Lumix 20mm was the oldest among the extraordinary lenses made for m4/3 cameras. Some people have reported banding at hight ISO with that lens. Also focussing is fast but not as fast as the the new M.Zuiko 17mm, the Sigma 19mm and the Lumix 25mm prime lenses on an OM-D. It used to be among my favorite lenses.

If you can live with its minor shortcomings, that's probably the best pancake lens.
