More lens choices! I agree with Nathan - and as I opined in a previous 
note, I don't believe anyone can really determine which lens is going to 
make it for you. 

I personally would tend to want the wider of these two. A 20-21mm lens 
has been a favorite of mine for 30 years. For most purposes, the 
performance of both of these lenses is good enough that they are 
indistinguishable in that regard for most pictorial photography, so base 
your selection on what kind of coverage you want/need.

(I'm actually beginning to get comfortable with the Heliar 15 now, I'm 
finding it more and more a useful tool rather than a curiosity... :)
