Panasonic 20mm. Or 14? I really like both. If I were to take a single lens on a vacation, it would probably be the 20. Or 14?

If it was me and I had to choose one - and only one - of those two lenses then I would go for the 20/1.7 because it's brighter than the 14, optically superior and closer to a "normal" focal length.

Having said that, I do not own either of those lenses.

The closest ones I have are the 12/2.0 and 17/1.8, which I think are better than the two Pannies. However, they're also bigger and more expensive - a LOT more expensive in the case of the 12 versus 14.
