I have twin two-year olds. Fast focus matters a lot. I have both the 25 1.4 and the 17 1.8. I prefer the 17. You need to keep the shutter speed up to prevent motion blur and end up shooting with large apertures. The DOF becomes almost too thin on the 25.

Also, the 17 is a lot smaller. This matters a lot since I'm lugging baby gear and picking up kids.

The 17 is lightening fast, it renders nicely and it's now my preferred everyday lens.
