Consensus on the 17 1.8?

I know this has been debated but... is there any consensus on this lens?

I didn't have the chance to try one in person (my dealer got one... and sold it immediately!), and while I'm considering it, I'd like to know how it compares with the likes of the 14 2,5 and 45 1.8, which I own.
Am still evaluating the real quality of OM-D pictures/high-iso/AF, but if eventually I'm convinced of its usefulness, I won't mind spending some money for other great glass (tried the 75, and that's a very nice lens).

Both my lenses are very sharp wide open, and with not too nasty CA. If the 17 1.8 is as sharp wide open, I may have found a lens to buy.

Thanks all,
