Have you tried the Panasonic 14mm? I mean not read reviews, but actually used one? It is very likeable.

I do believe that the 14mm can do most of what the 17mm f/1.8 can and there is very little real difference in use. Edge sharpness is a bit weak.  However, it takes very little space and costs so little. So, it could be a stop gap fix, but I do wish there is something better in IQ, speed, and good all round performance/usability without a significant flaw or two like all the available lenses at around this FL at this time.
