Oly 17mm/f1.8 functionality on Pana/GX85

Just got a GX85 -- but as part of the decision I considered the PEN-F as well, and as a result developed a very favorable impression of the Olympus 17mm f1.8 lens -- particularly like the 34mm / near-35mm equiv focal length.
Was hoping to get a run down on the loss of, or differences in, functionality/features and in-camera corrections associated with using the 17mm on Panasonic bodies in general and if relevant, the GX85 specifically?
For example can the manual clutch on the 17mm automatically trigger MF assist on a Panasonic body?  Do I lose any optical corrections by using the Oly lens on GX85? etc.
