17 is better than the 12

If you like a lens because it has great DOF for ease of focusing, then the 12mm even better. DOF properties does not depend on or determine quality of a lens.

The 12mm is also sharper than the 17mm f/1.8, which again shows the mediocrity of that lens since it is harder to make a good quality lens as for a 12mm than a 17mm.

I disagree with this statement. I own both the 17/1.8 and 12/2.0, and I consider the 17 to be the better lens of the two.
