Incredible lens, would always be on my EM1 if it weren't for the weight.

Yup. I've noticed that when I switch between the 150/2 and the Panasonic 35-100/2.8 I always like the 150/2 images better so I decided to get the 35-100/2.0. Now I need to decide if I want to keep the Panasonic or not. I guess it will see even less use now.

My 7-14 problem is that I can't decide if I want the SHG 7-14 or the 7-14 Pro...

There is just something magical about the images from the SHG lenses. Even tho the 50-200 gives me more reach I never use it anymore, just work harder to get closer with the 150.

I thought about the 7-14's and I really want the faster Pro lens.

I was considering getting the panasonic because although I love the oly 35-100, it's too cumbersome to carry around. I've hesitated because the oly's images are so good that I don't know if I'll be happy with the panasonic.
Rasmus, I'd be interested on your take on a direct comparison between the two 35-100 zooms.

I will probably end up with the Panasonic also, only because it will make a good lens to have with me all the time. But, will get the Oly 35-100 first.

Its a shame our favorite lenses are from a last generation system with suboptimal AF speed. They're all big and heavy too negating some of the benefit.

That's fine with me. I don't really need the AF speed except for sports and for that I will get the Pro lenses. Besides, my 150mm ƒ2.0 is a lot smaller then my Canon 300mm ƒ2.8 was and more versatile. I think the 300 Pro will change a lot of that tho.

Yes, but those SHG lenses are as big or bigger than their f2.8 FF equivalents.

Honest opinion....do you think the SHG lenses are superior to the m43 Pros? I have the 12-40 pro and it's a fine lens but doesn't seem special. I occasionally wish I'd had my 17,1.8 or 25,1.4 even the 50,1.2 with me instead.
