I have both, got the 20 first then the 25 a couple years later. I prefer the 25 overall and use it more now than the Lumix.

Both are sharp and from the standpoint of which to pick, angle of view can be the main reason--25 being "normal" normal and 20 wide normal. I like the 25 as a standalone do-all small prime.

If focus response and silence are important the 25 is the clear choice and the only one I bother to C-AF with. It also comes with a hood.

My $0.02.

You can be too; ask about our 12-step program.

I could go this route too, but I think I'll start with the 20. I don't want to get into back-against-the-wall situations when the family wants a group shot
