I bought both and sold panasonic 20mm

1. Image Quality is not as different as what the internet says. Yes panasonic is bit sharper and contrasty, but olympus performs well too I also like the neutral look of the olympus

2. Olympus outperform on the build quality. It looks and feels like a better product. Also it looks sexier

3. autofocus speed is terrible on the Panasonic. Most likely the slowest of all mft. Also noisy. Yes version2 is little better but still terribly slow and noisy

4.olympus is inner focus. Panasonic is not

I liked olympus 17mm so much I sold my used copy and bought a brand new lens. Shop owner thought I was a weirdo
