Who's getting the Oly 17/1.8?

I'm on the fence, and wondering what others are doing or thinking. The main reason why I'm considering the switch to the Oly 17/1.8 is for AF speed.  I'm not crazy about the price of the Oly 17/1.8, and initial testing appears to show that this is a good but not great lens.  Build quality seems to be superb. The snap MF focus ring also is a nice feature.

What are your thoughts? Does the Oly 17/1.8 have a spot in your M43 kit?
