I'll reserve judgment until I or a neutral third party has an opportunity to make the comparison. Consciously or not, all but one of the bokeh comparison pics were shot in such a way as to minimize the Panasonic's advantage.

While I certainly understand your reservations about an Olympus rep doing a comparative lens review, I think 2/3 of a stop on a 25mm lens is not worth arguing about. We are, literally, talking about a DOF difference of just over an inch. Background blur differences are inconsequential. And I'm a PL 25 owner.

I'm sorry to disagree on this. It does make a difference. Look at the smith photos. On the f1.4 we have a sense of depth. Not enough in the f1.8 shot. And it's not subjective.

owning a Nikon D600 with a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC, and a bunch of Nikon primes, a Nikon J1 but not particularly a Nikon fanboy, since I have an Olympus E-PL5, a Panasonic GX7, a Sony RX10 and a Canon S110 too!
