If a good zoom is not on you list, you should buy the 24 mm lens before the 20 mm lens. The 20 mm lens is more specialized ==> example making an object in the foreground dominant. The 24 mm lens is, at least for me, more useful ===> street photography, traveling and removing power lines from the composition of an architectural photograph of a building.
