The Canon 3X lens would be the best way to go, in my opinion.

You get the best of both worlds!
Totally agree.

Does anyone have any sample footage, stills, any info about RedEye .4X on 20x lens?
I am thinking about buying it but first I need to see how it works.

Haven't used the wide angle adapters, but I have the 3x lens and love it. In fact, it almost never comes off.
