I'm not getting it...

I already have the Panasonic 20mm 1.7 which holds it own. AF is slow but not unworkable. It's probably about the same speed as an older 50mm AF Nikkor driven by the camera body via screwdriver interface which served me well in the past.

Would I get the 17mm if I did not have the 20mm? Probably not as the 20mm is cheaper, more compact and again, holds it's own. But if a pristine 17mm shows up in the used market for 40% off retail I'd grab it in a heartbeat!
