I don't understand the: "25mm of course is larger" comparison with the 45mm.
In reply to mijokijo, Feb 3, 2014

He states that the 25mm f/1.8 and 45mm f/1.8 are quite similar but "25mm of course is larger". Why would that be "of course"? I would expect that a 25mm f/1.8 can be made smaller than a 45mm f/1.8.

We'll have to see some unbiased (not by an Olympus employee) reviews and spectacular shots to make me replace my outstanding 20mm pancake lens with the new 25mm. The first shots are nice and the bokeh is from a different world (than that of the 20mm which is awful) but at the given price point it better be a good lens. It's not like the $100 plastic fantastic 50mm f/1.8 I used with Canon...
