Oly 17mm 1.8: good?

After my troubles with the PL 15mm 1.7, see here:

https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/67500855

I am thinking about getting the Oly 17mm instead; i could get another copy of the PL, hopefully better, but i wonder if i could get along as well or maybe even better with the Oly. I've read all the major reviews i could find, and seems like the PL is generally slightly 'better'; in fact i do quite like it for bokeh and general rendering.

But the Oly has the focus clutch that i might like in use and it's probably no slouch in itself.

Whatever i'll end up getting will be through MPB, where i actually got my current 15; price on the 17 is lower, but not much of a factor.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks!
