I bought the 17mm after putting up with the frustration of sluggish or no focus lock with the 20mm in low light. 17mm is much peppier.

I second this. I used to be a "20mm/1.7 is the best" but now the 17mm/1.8 is rarely off my GX-7. So much more functional and I prefer the image quality.

Ditto. This lens lives on my camera most of the time.
