Go for the Panasonic 7-14mm f4. The difference in price now is so small, < $100, that it is worth it to get the Panasonic if you really care about ultra wide angle. As for me, both are too rich for my blood so I am going for the Samyang fisheye and a defishing plug-in for Paintshop.

Wow! Here in New Zealand the 7-14mm is twice the price of the 9-18mm sadly. The Samyang is half the price of the 9-18mm but a bit more of a specialist lens (I had the Oly 8mm years ago) and defishing every image sort of defeats the point of a fisheye lens for me anyway.
