I have both, and besides the obvious difference in grip length, there is a significant difference in the weight, on your hip. An inch give or take in slide, and barrel length, along with the additional rounds, add up to noticeable difference in weight.
I have had a few firearms that I've carried concealed. As far as concealability goes, if it's worn on the hip, the 29 is as concealable as any. I often wear a loose fitting t-shirt, and it stays hidden. Cannot quite pull that off with the G20. A little long in the grip. FWIW, the G29 will be my carry firearm till the end of days.
