No way. The 20mm is painfully sharp. Amazing for pets. The 17mm to me is a soft lens. Fast AF but fuzzy.

Some people just don't have a discerning eye. To me the 20mm and the 17mm are worlds apart. I exchanged the 17mm and the other one also was just as soft.

Can you post some examples?

I don't find mine to be "soft" or "fuzzy":
