So you claim the NEX 35 equals the Leica 25mm in IQ?

From my post below:

Let's compare similar lenses (approx 50mm Effective focal length):

The Sony 35mm OSS F1/.8 lens which costs $459 on Amazon right now vs. The Leica 25mm F/1.4 lens that costs $499 on Amazon right now.

Both are stabilized

In fact, the sony lens is stabilized on every nex body, but the Leica is not stabilized on a lot of the m43 cameras.

The OP is about the NEX vs. OMD.  The OMD has better stabilization.

The Leica offers a wider aperture and will perform better in low light. The Leica is by far the higher quality lens

Well can you show me a review that support your claim?

The wider aperture claim and being better in low light?  That one is easy. 

Quick quote from SLRGear about the Leica wide open :
The 25mm ƒ/1.4 Summilux is exceptionally sharp, especially when stopped down slightly. When used wide open at ƒ/1.4, the vast majority of the frame is incredibly sharp.

​Let's just say that I believe the Leica is a better lens and you claim the NEX 35mm lens is equal or better.   We can then let everyone else decide who is more credible.
