Look, I use Panasonic 20mm f1.7 on my OM-D E-M5 also and am quite happy with it, and I don't shy away from using it wide-open, but I'm also not going to deny easily verifiable facts.  The OP asked specifically about vignetting so I believe he deserves an honest answer focusing on this particular aspect.

If you've never seen any vignetting, then it's probably because you've never looked for it. Nothing wrong with that; I too prefer to take real pictures rather than pictures of brick walls.

Having said that, here are some pictures of my bathroom wall taken a few minutes ago.  Sorry for a slight underexposure; the metering system must've gotten confused with all that white, but it actually helps to see it in this case:

f1.7, shading compensation off

f 1.7, shading compensation on

f 4.0, shading compensation off - just to eliminate the lighting in the room as a possible culprit

I hope I proved my point...
