It's partly about "cost", also about "value for money".

I believe I could find more uses for a 25mm/.95 than a 12mm/2.0, and if it turned out to be the most used lens I owned, then the price wouldnt bother me.

I added the lens hood and cap bit as a poke at the Oly "lens tax".

The Voigtländer 25mm is incredibly useful. Night, day, close-ups, street shooting... it's my most used lens by far. If I had to give up all my native lenses, I'd keep it, though I'd probably have a very long debate over the 7-14mm.
