Yeah, I think the 17mm f/1.8 is ideal for low-light action, and anyone who uses it for people, pets, kids, etc., they seem to love it. Those who use it for brick walls, landscapes, and still life seem to be less than impressed. Interestingly enough, I think the 20mm f/1.7 have exactly the opposite strengths and weaknesses, which IMO is a great thing as they complement each other perfectly.
