Since it appears that Panasonic are some way off (if ever) producing a 12m prime, I may have to go with the 14/f2.5 (I have no interest in the expensive Oly 12).

I have the 20/f1.7 which is a great "carry about" lens on my G1, and it is generally agreed that this lens performs well (i'd second that), but we hear little of the 14/2.5.

Has anyone out there used this little lens for some time ? If so, I'd be very interested to read your comments, opinions, on it.

I use my 14/2.5 on two cameras and consider it my favorite lens. It is super-sharp especially at the center, has great colors and just 'pops.' Much faster AF than the 20/1.7. And I use the pana. 'G' fish-eye converter with zero obvious degradation. Highly recommended, and better/faster than my 14-45.
