Which I have done

ETA March 7th.

First, congrats Any new lens purchase is an exciting event

Not to criticize your purchase too much but if you can get the Pan-Leica 25mm 1.4 for only ~$100 more, I sure hope the lens is absolutely stellar, otherwise, I think the Pan-Leica is a better deal...

In the UK the new oly will be £369 and the pan is £429. The price difference is not as big as I thought it would be. Perhaps the oly will come down in price. It will be a bit smaller and lighter though and its biggest selling point is that it's an olympus lens.

Unless I'm dead set on 'only' getting Olympus lenses, I think I would have waited till the reviews comes in. Even then, there is a good possibility I would go for the Pan-Leica simply because of the extra speed.

Still, it's pretty small, and it does look like a pretty lens.
