I don't typically shoot at maximum zoom.  Would you still recommend the Olympus 45mm f1.8 over the 20mm f1.7?  I was also interested in the smaller pancake lens size for portability, but would gladly sacrifice small size for picture quality.

Picture quality is not the differentiating factor between the 20mm and the 45mm; both are stellar in this regard. The choice in this particular comparison is between faster focusing lens with a focal length that can be awkward to use indoors (the 45mm) and a slower focusing lens with a FL that's more suitable for indoor use (the 20mm).
