Is Oly 17mm 2.8 worth it?

I currently have a Oly 14-42 II lens and was thinking of getting a prime lens....specifically a good used 17mm 2.8.  Will I find the IQ of this prime noticably better than my zoom?  Or is any improvement in IQ too close to call, and I'd just as well served by forgetting about the prime lens?  Your answers and opinions are always important to me.

I only recently acquired a beautiful and gently used E-PL2 with both the 14-42 II and 40-150mm lenses.

Thanks
