Best M4/3 lens for stealthy, “no DSLRs allowed” professional shots in public places?

The quest being, to photograph (not “picture take”) professional models, entertainers, local celebs, etc., in busy, bustling, public places...

This is personally accompanying them, as a service to them, NOT as paparazzi...

A “pancake” or small as possible...

(For Oly Pens)

Fastest focus possible...

Full body, semi-action shots, w/ blurred backgrounds...

Can’t stand too far away and draw attention, has to be a causally walk around, click and move style...

So far I’m tossed up between the Oly 17mm f/1.8 or the Sigma 19mm f/2.8 at half the price... or if anyone can make a suggestion that falls in-between. Already tried the Panny 14mm. It’s too wide, non-corrected in Pens and way too close anyway.

(Should I even think about the Oly 17mm f/2.8?)
