Guys, I'm really tempted to buy this Olympus, it's the best micro 4/3 to date by far! I read that the Panasonic LUMIX LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm 1.4 is one of the best micro 4/3 lens available. I like it as it's a small/light lens that I could carry with me all the time. Do I need any kind of converter to use this lens on the Olympus? I'm considering either the Pana or the Oly 12 + 45mm.

Since the DG 25/1.4 is a micro four thirds lens, you don't need an adapter. Note that it isn't particularly small or light for what it is though. My Minolta MD 50/1.4 from the early 80s is smaller and nearly as light in spite of having twice the focal length and covering an FF rather than MFT image circle.
