I never carry my camera or my lenses in my pockets. But I nevertheless do appreciate that the 20/1.7 is about half the weight (100 versus 200 g) and less than half the bulk (about 25 versus about 55 mm long) of the 25/1.4. In fact, the 25 is surprisingly big for what it is. My Minolta MD 50/1.4 is about the same weight (230 g) and significantly shorter (40 versus 55 mm).

Here's the thing: is the 20/1.7 small enough that it changes the way you carry your camera?

Yeah, it does.  I can fit the camera in pockets than the 25mm wont allow.

This never would have happened if Tedolf was still alive.
