Drop $350 on a 45mm prime when you've already got the 14-42mm kit lens?

The other thing is, you can get by with a MF nifty fifty

To me, the 20mm f1.7 made more sense because there's no way to get a fast compact legacy lens on the cheap to serve the purpose of something in the 17-20mm range.  But if you can deal with manual focus, you can get a cheap old ~f1.8 ish nifty fifty for well under $50 including the adapter.  If you find that you need that focal length in a high speed AF lens, you can always get one down the road.
