The ultra compact Panasonic 20mm is one of the all time most sold lenses on m43. Its was one of their earliest ones and they made it a kit lens.

Panasonic theb did a V2.

Then hopped down to a Leica branded 15mm f1.7.

And did a couple of expensive 25mm lenses.

But no v3 revision of the 20mm for ttt get e video age. 
Clearly they know this 20mm niche is there - choosing to not do much there

In all this time Signa at most dipped their toe in the water with a clearly not directly competing 19mm f2.8.

Sigma followed that with a gigantic 16mm f1.4. Did not give a fig about a better 19mm. 
But Sigma joins L mount and we see a very expensive m43 12-25 fast zoom with Sigma involvement .

Product lineup with risk of cannibalization if a better 19mm or 20mm Prince?

Colkusion?Coopetition?  Yep I think so....

I’d say there’s a Panasonic 20mm f1.2 made by Sigma at some point...in the future.
