I own the 21/2.0 Zuiko, and it's saved my bacon more than a few times, 
especially in some low-light situations where I was hand-holding (couple of 
cathedrals in France, ferinstance...).  For European street photography, 
I'm a slave to the 21/2.0 and the 28/2.0.  It's razor-sharp, and bright, 
bright, bright.  I purchased my LN- example a few years ago for $550.00 
U.S., and along with the 28/2.0, it's probably the best Zuiko purchase I've 
made.  (The 28/2.0 has its own charms -- virtually zero barrel distortion!)

I don't own the 21/3.5, but it's got a good rep, particularly if you need a 
lens that's super-tiny and lightweight.  Not that "large and heavy" are the 
defining charcateristics of Zuikos in any case, but you know, always 
looking to shave a few more grams off the kit...   ;-)
