The conclusion is that since the PL 25mm is a Leica design, that you are "paying for the name" a little with that lens, there is a price hike on it just because of who designed it. Yes, that is a simplification I know, the PL 25mm has great build quality and is currently the m43 lens with the largest relative aperture, the f/1.4 normal prime on other systems was always the premium option.

The thing is, it's actually not (in all probability) a Leica design. It undoubtedly must meet some Leica specifications in order to use the name, but it is highly unlikely that Leica actually designed it...
