Comparing the standard zoom the difference isn't that big. Ditto for the F1.4 vs F1.8 prime.

That the Panasonic lens here is one stop faster is irrelevant- you still get shorter DOF at will on the Sony by one stop (F4) and the sensor being bigger, you get at least 2 stops better ISO, so you can afford to have one stop less in that aperture. In fact, the Sony is still as a system faster light wise.

I normally agree with you, but that Sony lens still looks considerably bigger to me. And one thing we still don't know is the optical qualities of the Sony system as a whole. We know the 12-35 is a very good lens on m4/3rds cameras.
