Then show me all the examples of additional lenses that look like the diagram in the panasonic 25mm and the sigma patent.

First answer me this: how many different 25mm f/1.4 AF lenses are currently being made for the M43 format?

Never mind, I'll answer myself: one. Therefore, there are no additional lens designs to show.

Feel free to resume the discussion if/when other 25mm f/1.4s show up in the marketplace. This includes the rumored but currently non-available Sigma.

I think you'll find the reason there is only one lens is that the Sigma and the "Panasonic-Leica" are the same lens.  Those expensive lenses they talk about on the Leica Talk forum are the ones that Leica design and build, but they aren't for the common folk like us, whatever's printed on the front...
