If looking for a good inexpensive normal prime, I wonder if a Sigma 30 might not be a better buy than the Olympus 25mm. Yes the Sigma is slower. And the corners are not as consistently sharp, but the Sigma is quite a lot sharper in the centre. The Sigma weights almost exactly the same as the Olympus, and costs a bit more than half as much.

Yup, the Sigma 30 is a great cheap lens. That is why I'm not considering the 25/1.8 at this time. I still don't like the size that much, but...

My new dream is that Panasonic will make a little 25/2.8 pancake for the GM1... it could happen! 

Until then, I'll shoot the Sigma.
