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

Mine isn't that soft/fuzzy.

E-M5 + 17mm @ f/5.6, converted in LR 5

Maybe you had a lemon?

The 20mm may not be as fast.  But it is quirurgically sharp.  The 17mm is faster AF but Compared to the 20mm it is nowhere as sharp.
