If you have Oly body I'd stick with Oly lenses

They're calibrated/designed  for the sensor/IBIS and CA and distortion are adjusted in camera

As to focal length the 17mm is more versatile than the 25mm if you plan on using it for landscapes as well

You can get either in the used market for less now but don't skimp, buy the best and have no regrets later

My recommendation: the 17mm, the most versatile MFT prime

Cheers,
