Does anyone know any decently sharp primes around 17-22mm?

Thanks,

You're fairly limited by what's available on the market today faster than f/2.8 in the 17-22mm range.
However, I'd take a look at the Sigma 20mm f/1.8.
If you're looking to spend more money there's a 21mm Olympus f/2 that's pretty nice, but sometimes hard to find.
