I think eventually if you are a m4/3 shooter most of us will want this lens.  Is it worth it I think the lens has proven itself, but do you need it yet?

Personally now that my kids are 4 & 5 I love the longer FL as the 25/1.4 and 45/1.8 were perfect for me up until this year really.  Now they get further away quicker, and actually for my less adventurous 4 year old other than at her classes she still is usually too close for the longer FL lens other than during portrait sessions.  My son at 5 I probably need a 200mm F/2 soon.

good luck with your decision at the age of your daughter the will be in arms reach for a little while longer maybe long enough for a price drop even before it became a go to lens.

just my $ .02...
