Is dependent as much on the camera as the lens.

12-60mm is fast and accurate on an E-5, but disappointing on a PEN

The camera a 20mm 1.7 is mounted on could have a noticeable effect on focus speed.

A big 4/3 lens may miss focus w a small body (E-4xx, E-6xx) and perform better w a battery grip added.

If you're concerned w real world AF performance, look to user reviews here and elsewhere, the clinical tests won't cover all possible parameters, but can tell you how good the lens is once properly focused.

Far from the question and far from the subject!
