Olympus 17mm f1.8 for video??

Is the Olympus 17mm f1.8 good for Video??

Or would the Panasonic 15mm f1.7 be a better choice?

I have an OLY M1 and M5 II and was planning to do some light video, while still really doing mostly stills. This would also serve as a backup to my 12-40mm when shooting an event, in case of an accident or problem with my 12-40. I also want the faster lens as I shoot live theater where flash cannot be used and sometimes can get very dark (light wise and some times content :<( )

Anyone have direct experience with this combo? Or at least either of these lenses for video?
I tried to search for a thread with these combo's but did not have much success, so I hope I am not be redundant! Thanks for any help!
