    I ordered from Panasonic Direct awhile ago, just received shipping confirmation email. So I guess we'll be seeing more available.... hopefully.

    I hope you're right! At any rate, I finally broke down and ordered one.

    Sorry if this is a naive question, but do Pany/Leica lenses produce images that have the same degree of brightness and
    hues of color as compared to Oly/Zuiko lenses?

    Example: I love the relatively bright, rich, yet realistic colors in these Oly 17mm prime images taken with an E-PL1:

    But will the SUMMILUX_25_mm deliver the same degree of image brightness and hues of color?
    These sample SUMMILUX_25 images taken with an E-PL1 have me concerned as both the image brightness and
    colors look subdued:

    Thanks so much for the notification! I have been checking on the lens every other day or so, after checking for the om-d. I might have missed it if I didn't see your post! Hopefully I grabbed it in time. Though, it doesn't make much difference because I can't use the lens until the camera arrives :(

    I also ordered one from Panasonic Direct at the beginning of March and just got the shipment email today. Can't wait...

    Out of stock again. I just traded mine. Boxed it up this morning, and I am missing it already. I may have ordered one if B&H still had them. It's a very, very good lens. And I am a bit sick.

    Look at this thread to see 40 pages photos from this lens.

    Any OMD owner interested in a PL25? I'll trade my PL25 for your OMD! Straight up of course!

    Darn, I wish I had known my brother was getting an OM-D while this was in stock. Now he has his camera but can't find the lens I've recommended to go with it.
