E-P1 w/ 17mm + OVF or E-P1 w/ 14-42mm

Now that B&H has the Olympus E-P1 w/ 17mm + OVF and the E-P1 w/ 14-42mm kits at the same price which would you go for? I do like primes but I have heard the the m.zuiko 17mm is a bit average. It seems to me that the benefit of the EP-1 kit w/ the 17mm is that you effectively receive the OVF for free compared to buying the 17mm lens later.

Interested to know how the 17mm users out there rate this lens. I guess I plan to buy the E-P1 w/ a 14-42mm and a prime eventually. Just want to know if the 17mm can cut or would you opt for something else? Thanks.
