I know it's an awesome lens, but can I do as well with a comparable- close second for the cost? Using it with a Pany G5. Thanks to all in advance. Have a great day- or night depending where you're at

If you don't mind a slightly larger lens that is manual focus only, you may want to have a look at the SLR Magic 12mm t/1.6 Hyperprime. Fast lens with a good review from photozone.de. This lens is cheaper than the Olympus 12mm f/2. It's manual focus only, but that shouldn't be too big of a problem at such a short focal length.

I don't own SLR Magic lens, but I am strongly considering buying it, rather than the Olympus (which I also don't have).
