New body or new lens? EPM2 vs PAN-LEICA 25MM

Get the new body with 16m.

I have the 20 1.7, 25 1.4 (sold it), 45mm 1.8, 75mm 1.8, plus assorted zooms.

Bodies, have OMD and PL2.

I short, if you already have the 20 and 45mm combo.  Definitely suggest the new bodies coming out with the OMD sensor.

Noise level way lower, faster focusing.   That would take your primes to another level of results in low light shooting.  And those lenses will let you see the extra megapixels also.  I prefer the 20 over the 25mm by the way - just fits closer to how I see the world.  I would even prefer it to be 17mm instead of the actual 18.5mm.   You have two beautiful lenses and now should have a body to match their capacity.  Or else, your system is 'unbalanced' in the sense that the sensor you have now is the weakest link by far.  On outdoor plenty of light shots, great - but not so great when iso goes up to even 600 or 800.   At those ISO, the OMD sensor remains much nicer.
