Which would you pick - E-M5 + 14mm 2.5 or GX1/LVF2 + 17mm 1.8 ?

Re: How about the EM-5+20/1.7

Its about midway between the other two lenses in price, but it does give great results on the E-M5.

It actually pretty close to the FL of the 17.5. THey call it a 20, but I think its closer to 18.5.

Having said that, if I had to pick between your two choices, I would go with the E-M5 and the 14/2.5.

20mm is too tight for me. The 17mm 1.8 negates my need for either the 14mm or 20mm. Plus I don't like the focus speed of the 20mm on the E-M5. It's quite a bit slower on that body.
