EcoR1: Aarrg. Read some commments below and I'm just astonished by the ignorance of some people. This Panasonic lens will gather as much light as any f2.8 full frame lens when mounted on the full frame camera. There is no debate. There is no "other" truth. If you think otherwise you are wrong, and that's it . If you wan't to consider the possible size/weight benefits for any full frame lens, the only comparison must be made for the 24mm f2.8 lens. That's it people.

You are mixing up DoF with "light gathering". You are wrong. But you can go ahead and yell "I'm right".

Ironically the dpreview article, the very article you cited said this about F numbers:

"As you can see, although the lenses are quite different, the 50mm f/2 lens is giving the same framing and the same depth-of-field as a 100mm f/4 lens is on Full Frame. As such, you can say that a 50mm f/2 for Micro Four Thirds is equivalent to a 100mm f/4 Full Frame lens in terms of both field-of-view and depth-of-field."

Not a word about "light gathering", but all about FoV and DoF.

You are wrong and I'm right.

Back to topic: Good lens and handy focal length. Price is a little bit too high.

@radissimo, didn't realize "price is a little bit too high" counts as whine. Will calibrate my whine meter!
