"If a much wider 12mm lens can be made to clearly outperform the 17mm, then the 17mm is not so stellar, even though there is a small difference in maximum aperture. It should be possible to make the 17mm at least as good if not better, since it is not as wide and it is not constrained otherwise (by size restrictions like with pancakes), or by other considerations."

They look pretty close to me.

Have you actually shot with any of these lenses? I have and would need to print to gallery size to tell the difference - if any.
