    Very nice. I'm still somewhat torn on the PL25. The blasted 20/1.7 is pretty good on its own

    I know what you mean. When I ordered the PL25, I was thinking I would sell my 20/1.7. In the end, I like the 20/1.7 too much to get rid of it, but now it is just sitting around not getting much work...

    Can't stop thinking about the 25, just don't have the funds for it :(

    I love the 25 so far. Built and image qualities are great! My only complain is that the focus ring is a little too sensitive, triggering the manual focus zoom too easily when I have this function on in SF-M mode.

    heh, yeah, that'd be the other problem. Unless someone buys my PL45 or wants to trade =)

    Actually, how does the 25 compare to the 20 in use since you have both? mostly in focus speed, accuracy, and noise. And then, same questions vs the oly's. I basically have the same kit, so it'll help me gauge where the PL25 would fit for me =)

    The focus speed of the PL25 is so much faster than that of the 20, it makes a huge difference. For me, it means capturing that special moment with the kid or missing it, so I haven't gone back to the 20 since I started using the PL25. It is also much more quiet than the 20. Basically silent focusing. I think accuracy is a result of the camera's focus system, so it is probably the same on the 2, although I haven't done any side-by-side comparison. If you don't mind the size, I think the PL25 can pretty much replace the 20.
