Re: Pana 20/1.7 (version II) vs Oly 17/1.8?? Need help deciding.

Anders W has tested the 20/1.7 and 17/1.8 and found no meaningful difference in AF speed. He suggests people believe the 20 is slower because it is noisier focusing. For example, http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3563867

The 20 v 17 is a frequently debated topic here.

Those results do seem a bit, well, odd , watch this video and see for yourself

The review regards the cameras and is somewhat long, but he discusses and demonstrates the lenses in the second half or so.
