The announcement of this months back certainly changed my plans on what to save up for. I could see Panasonic users like myself interested, but I'm skeptical that Olympus users would be interested as well (considering the 45mm 1.8 is great and their bodies have IS built in). I also wonder if folks with super-fast Voigtlander or SLR Magic primes would have any interest. So who's eagerly awaiting this lens (whenever it comes out) and who has no interest at all and why?

I currently have the Oly 45/1.8 with my OMD but would seriously consider the Panasonic. If its amazing wide open it might just tempt me to go for the OMD/43/1.2 combo instead of my Sony A900/85/1.4.

I shoot the 85/1.4 at 2-2.8 a lot, so a DOF equiv of 2.4 is actually pretty respectable, plus the light gathering qualities of a 1.2 lens for low light shooting would be great.
