ADVICE Request: Zhongyi 42.5mm f/1.2 vs Panasonic 42.5mm f/1.7

Can you help me?

I just bought an used Panasonic G6 as a "quick fix" before buying a G85 in the future...

The use I'll give it is some photography and small video clips for youtube.

The PROS&CONS

Zhongyi (Mitakon) 42.5mm f1.2

PROS

  • Price: around 280€ (Amazon.es)
  • Max. aperture: f1.2

CONS:

  • Manual focus
  • Not stabilized

PANASONIC LUMIX G 42.5mm / F1.7 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S.

PROS:

  • Autofocus
  • Stabilized

CONS:

  • Price: around 360€ (Amazon.es)
  • Max. aperture: f1.7

The big question is whether the Panasonic "CONS" are not far from the Mitakon, however the manual focus and stabilized, can ruin a session ...

The other doubt is that (I guess it should be analyzed with examples / yoube), if there is much difference of sharpness and of bokeh between both ... whereas some objectives present / display lack of sharpness and chromatic aberrations to its maximum opening (I do not know if this is the case).

Thanks in advance
