IF you are looking for a wide angle lens - I wouldn't discount the 14/2.5.

I have this lens and have to say I like the focal length (28mm equiv), and it really is very sharp in the centre esp from f2.8 onwards. Only downside - some softness at the edges - mostly fixed by stopping down to f4. Normally your subject is not at the edge of the frame so I find it no real loss.

CA is present but easily removed in lightroom.

Considering it is easily obtained for less than half the cost of the 20/1.7, I reckon it is the bargain of the MFT prime lenses.
