    Do you think I should grab a Panny 20mm f1.7 or wait until olympus releases the rumored 25mm f1.8 (apparently at an affordable price).

    You are comparing an existing lens with very well known virtues and flaws with vaporware at this point.

    I'd say, if you need it, like, yesterday, get the Pany. After all, it will probably retain much of its value for the next months. Also, check what 20mm vs 25mm FOV is all about in your particular photographic needs.

    Finally, if you have a Panasonic body, the Pany will AF a bit faster (from most user accounts) than on an Olympus body.

    I do find the deliberations that I've seen about waiting for the Olympus 25 f1.8, think of the shots you could be taking with a 20mm between now and the rumoured lens ever being released!
