The Olympus price may or may not come down, but the point that some of us were responding to was the claim in Robin Wong's promotional review that the PL25 costs twice as much.

The other side of the coin is that early adopters of the Oly 25mm are likely to do relatively poorly in the resale market if they later decide to sell the lens ... while the older PL25's street price isn't likely to fall.  You can more or less "rent" a PL25 for $100 and use it for a couple years, since you can sell it used for about $100 less than the new price.
