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.
