When you say 'slow to focus' with the Pany 20 . . .

I'm looking for a faster, general FL prime to accompany my 14-140 as part of a travel kit.  I am thinking that the choice comes down to either the Pany 20, or the Oly 17.

Several years ago, I had the Pany 20 that I used on and EPM1.  I remember that it focussed slower than my (then) Oly 14-150, but not terribly slower.  But one of the criticisms often voiced is that the Pany is slow to focus and hunts a bit in low light.  But frankly, I don't remember missing many (if any) shots.

So the question is, just exactly how slow does it focus?  Remember this is for travel - I'm not shooting wildlife or kids.
