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.

That's the conclusion I come to when I use logic. Much like I argue that current sensor cameras such as my E-M5 are superior to older ones such as my GF3. But when I glance at my desk, just left of my coffee mug, I see a GF3 with a 14mm.

Ha! Yeah, I know what you're saying. I often find myself shooting with the 14-42 IIR, which is supposed to be junk. And I still choose to use an E-P3 over the newer cameras.
