The 20 is a very good lens. The 18 (all versions) is sharp enough, in 
general but has nasty moustache distortion.

The VC 20 is quite nice; no better than the Nikkor but also has auto 
diaphragm but not AF. If you don't want/need AF the earlier Nikkor 
20/3.5 with 52mm filter threads is excellent and would be my choice.
