There are pros and cons to each, and both are excellent.

I chose the Olympus because it is a tad wider and because the focussing is quicker. That makes it more useful to me. It looks nicer on my OMD EM-5 too.

I just think it's a great shame that us EM-5 users even have to be asking the question. Come on Olympus - you are producing some lovely glass from 25mm onward, but apart from the 12mm, there really isn't much on offer around 14-20mm. The 17/1.8 should be better. IMO! Which is why when out on the streets, I pick up my Fuji X100 without question.
