For me, the Olympus is a no brainer

Only because of minimal focus distance.

Both lenses are great, but the Oly focus closer, and is cheaper.

The diffrence between f/1.4 and f/1.8 in m4/3 seems to be insignificant in terms of DOF, that's interesting. In FF the difference seems bigger.

The Olympus seems to follow it's older f/1.8 brothers (17, 45 and 75) being fully sharp wide open, that's great.

Let's wait for other reviews, but I guess they'll reach more or less the same conclusions that M. Wong.
