There has been plenty of criticism about the 1.8 too; being a tad soft.

I'm fairly certain a good percentage of these criticisms come from 20mm fanboys and review trollers who have never even used the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 and just like to pixel peep test charts from reviewers.

I'm fairly certain that the criticism is confirmed by multiple review sites that have performed objective tests and found the lens to be less than stellar, e.g. http://www.lenstip.com/357.11-Lens_review-Olympus_M.Zuiko_Digital_17_mm_f_1.8_Summary.html

Not a bad lens, but certainly nothing to write home about. If you like the focal length then it will produce decent results.
