Lens Advice Request
Dec 5, 2011

I've had a GF1 for just under a year and have shot almost exclusively with the 20mm pancake coupled in recent months with a manual Canon FD 50mm 1.8.

I've missed the wider focal length of my old LX3 so part of me wants to get the Olympus 12mm or the Panasonic 14mm. If it weren't for the price difference and it being silver, I'm not really a fan of the magpie effect sticking that on my camera might have, I would have bought the 12mm already. And then I've felt that I can't justify owning two lenses with such similar focal lengths (ie the 14 and 20).

So this made me think about ditching my 20mm and getting a 14mm and a pana-leica 25mm. Other than the focal length difference, is there anything I would lose/gain by swapping from the 20mm to this combination (the 25mm in particular)?

Thanks in advance
