To me the 20 is a great optical lens and good pancake form factor ruined by an awful AF implementation. Why they didn't fix the AF with version II is beyond me.

because how else could they convince me to buy the more expensive 25mm lens? the slower noisier AF is one of the reasons I went with the Leica. the other is low light performance (f1.4 vs f1.7). i would have probably liked the 20mm FOV, but not at the expense of slow AF and geat noise.
