Olympus 17mm f1.8 or Panasonic 20mm f1.7ii on Panasonic body
2

I have a lumix g90 (a.k.a. g95) and I wanted to buy cheap 35mmish fast prime for my body. The two options that I am considering are Pana 20mm f1.7ii and the Oly 17mmf1.8. The Panasonic has great IQ, but suffers from slow AF. It does not even allow AFC operation on Panasonic bodies, which is a real limitation. The Olympus has inferior IQ (according to most reviewers), but it is built better and does not block AFC operation on Panasonic bodies.

Currently, I am leaning towards the Olympus lens, but I would like to know from people who have used this lens, are there any issues when this lens is paired with a Panasonic body.
