Actually it didn't take that much thought. I recently did some selling of lenses and trading of gear and because I didn't really pay attention to what I had been doing I ended up selling and/or trading BOTH my Panasonic 14's. I hate it when that happens. Having just picked up an Olympus 45 and been really happy with it I decided to look at the idea of saving my pennies until I could pick up an Olympus 12/2. It looks like a great lens, focuses VERY fast with my E-P3 and is really looks to be the cats pajamas. Unfortunately at almost triple the price of the Panasonic 14 I realized I'd need to save a boatload of pennies. I also realize that while I like to have a WA option available to me I don't use it enough to justify a lens that costs as much as a human spleen (or a round trip ticket to Spain). In my search I came across this article and it helped not feel like a total fleeb for preferring the idea of getting the Panasonic 14 over the Olympus 12. Clearly the Olympus 12 is the better lens and I'd love to have one but I'd also like to have a pet Zebra and have a piranha filled moat around my house too. I have a black 14/2.5 on the way.
