The Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 lens retails for $275 at Amazon and sells for more than that at most retailers. I paid about $300 for mine, and it has been one of my favorite lenses, in fact my single most used lens, ever since. If I had to pick a single two lens kit for Micro 4/3, price not a factor, it would be the Panasonic 14mm wide angle pancake and the Olympus 45mm portrait lens. The Panasonic 14 is: ... the smallest, lightest native lens for Micro 4/3 ... one of the fastest focusing lenses for Micro 4/3 ... extremely sharp even wide open ... a full stop faster than the kit zooms ... capable of delivering pleasing bokeh (out of focus blur) However, what makes the Panasonic 14mm lens the best deal in all of MFT-dom* is that Ebay retailers are splitting the lens off from camera-lens kits and selling the lens brand new for $160 (Ebay US) or £99 (Ebay UK). Edit: Some of our UK members have mentioned that VAT and custom fees significantly add to the cost there. Sorry I overlooked this.

If you have a different take on the best deal in MFT-dom, by all means share it a reply! **When you buy something on Ebay after clicking any Ebay link on our site, they give us a small referral credit.
