As others have said, it depends on your needs and the quality of the lens. When I look at the Panasonic 25mm, I do not see it as expensive based on user experience with the lens and on the general quality of it. It also gives something no other lenses give: AF.and f1.4.
That, imho makes this lens rationally priced.
When I look at a lens such as the olympus 12mm, its different for me. People that have it say how good it is, but for me I would have a hard time justifying such a purchase, specially if I had a standard zoom.
Then as we climb up the price ladder, there is the olympus 75mm which is even more expensive, but which I am currently trying to convince myself into buying because of the quality (like the other lenses I mentioned), but also because its good more reach which appeals to me.
Now, that is how I feel now. prior to my jump in mft less than a year ago, I had a 500$ p/s camera from 2004 and if it weren't for the olympus 45mm (which is great, yet very affordable), I'd probably say all 3 of the lenses previously mentioned were too expensive for me. So it really depends on a lot of things.
