Just for curiosity I "compared" via SLRGear my Pana 14-45mm to the Oly 17mm both at best aperture (14-45mm at 18mm as per graph)....

Many thanks to slrgear.com

To me they are so close in performance at their sweet spots (f/5.6 in both cases). I would have normally expected a more expensive prime to be much better than a kit lens.

How does the zoom look @ f1.8 ?

And can that graph tell you all you need to know about performance?

I'll stick with the kit zoom for a while longer....

Yes, it sounds perfect for you.
