    I've been lurkin' about this PL25. I have to state that I got Panny 20mm, and pretty impressed with the IQ, but it's focus speed drives me nuts. You can say that it's not a fast lens and is perfect for landscape in low light, but when it's coming about taking photos of wifey and children, you can't hold them still for long, and that hunting for focus...

    My thought is, I found to sell my Panny 20 and 45-200 for the price that could let me to purchase a brand new PL25 (from B&H). Is it worth it the exchange? Keepin in mind that I have the fresh copy of Panny 100-300mm, just bought it.

    Or the second though would be to get a used Oly 75mm, with a bit of extra money I can get this one. Also I need to add that I got Oly 45mm.

    Your thoughts for a kingdom! :)

    I guess it depends on how you like your copy of the 45-200. I would absolutely make that trade, I have a 45-200 that I don't really use, because I think it's a piece of junk.

    As i can see it you have two options replace the wife and kid :smile: or get the 25mm.
    Since you have the P100-300 and getting the P25, then the P20 and P45-200 are redundant. Get the P25 and keep the family.
