G85: Olympus 17mm 1.8 vs 20mm 1.7 ii

I recently bought a G85 and just saw a good price for a secondhand Olympus 17mm 1.8. I currently own the 20mm 1.7 ii which I bought for a small carry around lens but actually haven't used it much yet. I know the 20mm is described as being sharper than the 17mm but I think the 17mm would be better suited to my preference as it is a bit wider and the faster auto focus would be a definite advantage which is also quite for video. Is there any disadvantage of using the Olympus lens on my G85? I saw comments saying the CAF doesn't work with Panasonic bodies? Perhaps this is not a big deal for me, are there any other factors I need to consider? Thanks

Panasonic G85
