People mainly seem to concentrate on ‘light gathering’, sharpness and the subjective issue of bokeh, but frankly the only major difference between the 17mm f1.2 and 1.8 in my use as a street photographer is for subject isolation.

Hi Mark

What I've found is that the f1.2 trio has completely relieved me of "full frame anxiety", you know, that sneaking insinuation from some of our brilliant posters here that MFT isn't good enough for "real" or "proper" photographers (whoever they are).  For quite a while I did look at my more arty shots and wonder if I'd be better off cashing it all in and going to shoot at f1.8 or f2.4 FF, I do love good separation.  The Oly 1.2's killed off all that for me...  Liberated or what!
