    Wondering -- has anyone found they replaced their P20 with the PL15/1.7.

    I love my P20, but I also have and love my PL25. The size is a big difference between these lenses no doubt, but they are so close in focal length. I am wondering if the PL15 + PL25 might not make more sense. Was wondering if anyone went down this path, and if so, thoughts??

    I like shooting 35-40, so I wouldn't go for that combo. But if you like 50 then 30 seems like a nice companion. Everything I've read says sharpness is a wash, AF and build is better on the 15, but cost and size are both bigger.

    I have all 3 of those lenses. I use PL15 and PL25. I don't touch P20 anymore. Optically they are all superb. The pancake size is not important to me as the PL15 is quite small as well, and I'm not going to pocket my EM10 anyways. The difference came down to FoV and AF speed. With the PL25 I did find P20 too similar. Also, my main subjects these days are babies/kids, so AF speed was beginning to be more important, hence I use the PL15 and PL25 now...
