Is the PL25 really worth the price of a 20/1.7 and 45/1.8 combined?

Now this add oil on the fire, I have just read a test stating that the new Fujinon 640$ 35mm performs way better on the APSC X Pro sensor than this 5000$ Leica on the M9 sensor ! (test by Ken Rockwell)

Take the latter with a big grain of salt, though, as Ken has a tendency to declare "best" on whatever he decides to like best for personal use at a time. There is little gray and and lots of black and white in Rockwell world. Sometimes that's a good thing, because it makes for some down-to-earth practical guides, but sometimes it's the opposite of "educated decision making".

And his current X-Pro1 article (draft) is a copy & paste of the X100 one, including praising the non-existent built in flash. The camera is declared "best" for the very same things that the X100 is declared "best", quite a stretch of the word "best" whenever new toys/tools and articles come up.
