I would wait for price drops

Prices for Panasonic lenses seem to drop after a few months. I saw a post from someone saying that Japanese retailers are already listing the lens for sale below the MSRP.

I believe the 14mm pancake debuted at an MSRP of $399 but Amazon is selling it for $275 now. The 20mm pancake sells for 10% below retail and the 25mm Panasonic/Leica lens sells for a bit more than 10% below retail at BHPhoto.

I don't think a 10% price drop after a few months would be out of the question, maybe more but it all depends if you're willing to wait.
