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...

I suspect you're correct about the lens design in question. I just lack the anti-Leica slant on the subject. I'm neither a snob nor a reverse snob. The 25mm is a fine lens...I'd buy it if it came out under the Lomo brand.

Given how amazing the Samyang/Rokinon/etc. M43 fisheye lens is, I hope they make more M43 stuff and give the big boys a run for their money.
