GAS Attack - 15mm 1.7

My usual small camera bag has the GM1 with 12-32, the 9mm bodycap, the 20mm F1.7 and the Panny 45-150mm.

I'm thinking to sell the 20mm F1.7 and replace it with the 15mm F1.7 - seems a little frivolous, what does this really buy me?

  • Better AF
  • Wider FOV
  • Aperture control ring
  • Better Bokeh

On the negative side:

  • Slightly larger, heavier lens
  • Slight decrease in sharpness

Any other insights, comments?
