Both. They are not super expensive but are nice, reasonably light lenses. The 30mm is probably more useful to get first, but save up and get the 56mm which is a superb short range telephoto lens. I have a 17mm and the 56mm and I don't really need anything else for everyday photography.

Would you recommend the 30mm over the panasonic 20mm f/1.7 pancake lens? (I already have that one)

I guess that depends on which version you have, and if you plan to shoot video.

I don't own, but I have heard, that the 20mm 1.7 isn't ideal for that, based on the motor.

I personally own the 30mm 1.4 and I can tell you it definitely has noticeable chromatic aberration when wide open, or close to it  (as to be expected, I suppose)
