I'm in the same situation: I have the 15mm/1.7, 20mm/1.7, and 25mm/1.4 and would have sold the 20 if it weren't a pancake. Right now, it almost permanently resides on my E-P5.

Same^^^^^^^ If you have the 15 mm already, it's a no brainer to get the 25 1.4 I very rarely use my 20 now that I have the 15 & 25 mm. Still a fantastic little lens, just sort of in between. If I had to only carry one, it would most likely be the 20 mm though. It focuses plenty fast & accurate on my GX8. No hunting.

Same, 15, 20, and 25 f/1.4.  I won't let any of them go, but now I use the 15 more than the others, and the 20 mostly stays in a small camera bag with my GM5 and 12-32.

For the OP, already owning the 15, I would suggest skipping the 20 and getting one of the 25s.  The 1.4 is great.  I can't speak to the 1.7.
