Panasonic 20mm f1.7 vs Olympus 17mm f1.8

Has anyone done a back to back comparison of these two lenses?

I currently have a Panasonic 20mm, and it's a very good very small lens, stunning IQ for such a small lens, makes the camera very discrete - but is slow to focus in comparison to the Olympus lenses I have (mainly PRO)

  • Is the IQ as good or better than the Panny?
  • Is the focussing as good or faster?
  • How much of an advantage is the manual focus clutch (I'm aware of the focus assist not operating with this lens in manual)
  • How much bigger than the tiny Panny is it?

Some Olympus stuff
I didn't get where I am today...
