It seems there's very little difference:

The latest version of Panasonic's Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 'pancake' lens has been re-styled to make it a better match for the company's ultra-compact DMC-GM1 or DMC-GM5 cameras. Offered in black and silver, it has the same basic specifications as the original 14mm f/2.5 lens we reviewed back in September, 2011. The AF drive appears to have been upgraded to provide faster, quieter autofocusing but otherwise nothing much has changed.
I'd buy the 15/1.7 if you can afford the extra. It's a much better lens.

The Panasonic 15mm f/1.7 is probably THE best u4/3 lens ever. You will not be disappointed.
