Also for the 17mm F1.8, it is known for some pretty evident CA, so depending on how much that bothers you? I own the 20mm F1.7 (on a GX7), it's a great lens and i don't often have trouble locking AF, even in the dark. The AF speed is however not super fast, if you want even sharper optics and fast AF, i would recommend the 25mm F1.4. Faster, sharper than any lens except the 75, fast AF, great lens. I won't say the 20 is slow, but if you are very picky about AF speed it might not suit you.
