Ok, not quite about to burst but I need a little retail therapy.

I have been patiently awaiting the black Oly 17mm lens - I just can't do the silver one. However, a local retailer has the Panny 25mm on sale for $549. Now, I know the lenses are different focal lengths but both are very workable for me.

Should I take the plunge with the Panny now and pick up the Oly at a later time (probably when demand for black 17s has waned)?

The 25mm is simply a remarkable lens.  I never warmed to the 20mm, but the 25mm is something else indeed.  It is one of my two favorite M43 lenses (the other being the 12mm Oly).  It's also extremely useful for indoor work and portraiture.
