Re: Panasonic 7~14mm or Olympus 12mm ?

I have both.  I think the IQ is around the same, which is impressive for the 7-14 zoom, not so for the 12mm prime.  The advantage of the 12 is it takes filters, the 7-14 that (obviously) it goes wider.  If money is not a problem, get one now and the other later.  I'd start with the 12mm. It feels "right" on the OM-D.  But the 7-14 has its uses.  If someone told me I had to give one back, I'd think very hard.  And then punch him.
