In case you don't speak Polish, here is the Lenstip version of the Olympus 17 1.8 Review.

When the 17 1.8 was announced, a lot of people here were throwing the 20 1.7 under the bus, which I thought a bit premature. How many will still change from the 20 1.7 to the 17 1.8?

Yeah ... if you take a look at this lens versus the Panny 20 1.7, you will see that the Panny is better everywhere ... center resolution at 1.7 is a hair worse than the Olympus at 2.8 ...

Not much of a contest, although if you want 34mm versus 40mm the choice is obviously the Oly ...

What is really amusing is how the review of the Panny 14mm 2.5 is lukewarm because it does not reach the dizzying heights (75) of the Panny 20 ... yet this Oly does not even get past 65 ...

The two Pannies make a lot more sense than the very expensive Oly I'm afraid ...
