Is the PL25 really worth the price of a 20/1.7 and 45/1.8 combined?

Apr 12, 2012

So waiting for the body-only E-M5s to come in, I've been mulling over a radically streamlined lens kit. At the height of my lens addiction I probably had twenty, mostly obscure legacy MF lenses... but now most of those are being sold off to finance the new body. And now that I'm down to a few it feels rather good with a smaller setup. Which brings me to the topic of this thread...

I have the 20mm and 45mm in my bag, but have really had my eyes on the PL25. I could save up for that, or sell the other 2 lenses on fleabay and get a brand spankin' new 25mm. Is it worth it? I still have a few MF 50mm lenses left, so have that focal length if I need it...
