The optical performance of both is excellent. The Olympus is much better for focus speed and feels (to my hands) solid and smooth.

In my book the Olympus is worth every penny extra but if money is a prime consideration, few would be unhappy with the 20mm, other than the focus speed.

I have reviews of both lenses here Olympus 17mm and here Panasonic 20mm. For me, the 17mm focal length hits a very sweet spot.
