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...

I've got the Panasonic 25/1.4, and as much as I like it should the new Oly deliver roughly the same optical goods the small size is attractive enough for me to consider switching. Smaller lenses means I can carry and use more of them, and that's the primary attraction of the m43 system for me.

The 12-35 and 35-100 Panasonics are terrific, and once you start carrying them the primes need to be small or I'll leave them at home. The 14 Panny, 25/1.8 Oly, and 45/1.8 Oly are about all the primes I'm likely to cart about on top of the 7-14/12-35/35-100 trinity. As stellar as the 75 Oly is, It's already riding the pine now that I have the 35-100. Ultimate optical excellence may keep me from selling the 75 (or 25/1.4), but not reserve a consistent spot in my carry bag.
