Exactly so. If you have to buy now, why be stuck in old AF technology? The 14/2.5 is much better than the 20, and so the 19 and the 30. They make an almost magic sequence with ultrafast AF and good optics.

In comparison the 20mm is like a stranded fish, peddled only by those who are stuck with it.


Wow! Even though I am rarely a champion for the 20, it's still a fine lens for the price. Also think it is much better overall than the P14 (other than focus speed).
