Are the constant aperture Panasonic lenses worth it (and are you wating for Olympus?)

It depends on whether you "need" them.  They are the only straight F2.8 game in town and therefore you have to pay to play.  I am concerned a better lens will come and severely devalue them, but I wanted the speed now and the quality is very good.

If I had my druthers, I'd want a 12-42 F2.8 (the little extra reach would make it more useful for me.)  I'd also like to see a straight F2 to get me to F4 full frame DOF equivalency, but, of course, that would be a bigger lens.
