First off, I realize the Olympus is neither announced no even a sure thing but I am very attracted to the idea of it. If there IS a 25/1.8 coming in around $250 and sharing lineage with the 45/1.8 I can see it being a very good lens indeed. I have undergone an m43 purge in a sense getting rid of most of my m43 gear (for a variety of reasons). I decided to stick with my E-P1 and GF2 and the P14/2.5, O45/1.8 and want to fill in the third spot with a normal prime. I sold the P20/1.7 I have had for some time (and liked) mostly because I want something with faster AF. Since I got my NEX it has taken over any MF duties so my m43 gear is the compact AF kit. I suppose I could have kept the P20 but sometimes you just gotta move one and try new stuff. FWIW the P20 is much quicker on the GF2 than the E-P1. If the O25 does not materialize I figure Panasonic may update the P20. I was all set to wait out a possible 25/1.8 then I started thinking that the PL25/1.4 is very appealing (albeit larger) option. Here is the question, does anyone use the PL25 with an E-P1? Is it faster than the P20 was? I am gambling that if Olympus does bring out a 25/1.8 it'll have similar AF performance to the 45/1.8 which is pretty decent on the E-P1 (and terrific on the GF2). FWIW there is something liberating about heading out with an E-P1 and P14 or O45 and nothing else. I don't miss any of the gear I cleared out. I have decided to put the burden of better pictures on ME being better rather than my gear.
