Experiences Gr vs nex+20mm?

Does anybody have a real life experience of both Ricoh Gr and Nex 5n (or any model) with a 20mm pancake? I've a odd nex lying around but no pancake lens but I'm tempted by the gr. Buying just 20mm would be still cheaper than gr.

Gr and Nex are not Pentax, so I can't help.

I've got the 20mm, and it's a pretty soft lens. The Sigma 19mm is better, and I'm sure the GR will be excellent.

well, focal length is almost the same, image quality of sony and 20mm is sufficient. But the ergonomics of GR is much better - you have 2 dials, hybrid AF, snap focus mode and some other features - no AA filter etc. It is hard to compare. Personally, I would take the GR
