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

Sure, that why we have u4/3 and not Olympus system. i wonder if you give the same advice for Panasonic owners.

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

I didn't know there is a specific calibration for IBIS. Can you share this knowledge? CA are corrected for panasonic as well in new oly cameras.

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

Like if new lenses are feww from problems.

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

the most average MTF prime.
