You could use the 14mm/2.5 lens, and just crop it from 16MP to 11MP to get the same FOV as a 17mm lens, or something like that.

That's what I've been considering also.  The 14mm is basically a 17mm with a few less pixels.  Heard such good things about the 14/2.5, I don't know what I'm waiting for.  Well, I do too know.  I need to sell my two Pentax Ltd's first.

The 25/1.4 is just so nice; photos are beautiful.  17mm is too close to 25mm to have both - for me.  I'd rather have a 14mm; the 2.5 aperture doesn't bother me, since blurry backgrounds are not often needed w/that FL anyway.
