If you are on crop, why not a used 17-50 f2.8? more flexibility as compared to a prime.

How about 35 f2? If u really need wider, the 24 f2.8 has pretty good reviews on it.

The exact focal range in which you feel most comfortable shooting in for either landscape or street photography is a very personal thing, and it differs from person to person. Personally, I feel that there is quite a big difference between 20mm and 24mm - 20mm is a lot more distorted and has a less natural perspective. Between the two lenses, 20mm would be my choice for landscapes, but not for street. I would actually go sub-20mm for landscape though, to the region of 14-16mm, but that is just me.

Perhaps it might be best for you to stick with whatever lens you currently have now, and when you've got a clearer idea about what focal lengths you like, then you can spend the money and buy whichever lens you prefer.

I like 20mm for landscapes and 24mm for streets. If I were to choose one, it would be the 24mm cause it's also wide enough for most landscapes, and I'll just stitch if I needed a wider fov
