Just for curiosity I "compared" via SLRGear my Pana 14-45mm to the Oly 17mm both at best aperture (14-45mm at 18mm as per graph)....

Many thanks to slrgear.com

To me they are so close in performance at their sweet spots (f/5.6 in both cases). I would have normally expected a more expensive prime to be much better than a kit lens.

I'll stick with the kit zoom for a while longer....

Take a look at the 20mm also to keep it in perspective. It doesn't look better than the 14-45 lens either.
