  • Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 - 63mm diameter, 55mm long, 200 grams, 46mm filter, $529
  • Olympus 25mm f/1.8  -- 56mm diameter, 41mm long. 136 grams, 46mm filter, $399

The Panasonic is obviously faster, and probably a better constructed lens. It might even be better optically. We won't know until we see a few professional reviews.

The Olympus is obviously smaller, lighter and cheaper.

I think we have two very nice lenses here, which should provide good options for M4/3 users. I'd be happy with either one.
