I just did an unscientific test of focusing on the cr@p around my desk in 7:25 morning light and the 20 1.7 seemed to focus as fast as my 45 1.8.

Try the same thing going from very far to something close and see if they are still equal.  My experience has been that the 20/1.7 gets slow in this situation where other lenses are much faster.
