Re: Lens rentals shows the difference pretty clearly:

I just got an OM-D, but I'm still waiting for it to arrive. I'm still trying to find my style, and have been using different lenses on my Canon T2i. I noticed that I've stayed with the Sigma 30mm F1.4, but have been wanting some fast that is wide.

After I purchased the OM-D I've been wondering about the kit lens, and the 12mm. The 12mm seems perfect to me. I have been in many situations where the Sigma 30mm is too close. I'm not much of a portrait guy. I don't think I can justify the price of the 12mm just yet though. I think I'll keep my kit lens, and buy the Panny 25mm, and then the 12mm when I can afford it.
