and a 550d with a 50 mm 1.4 will not give you any advantages in case if Dof, you have to stop down to get a aquivalent sharpness then a panaleica 25 mm at 1,4

In the case of crop Canon, its the Sigma 30/1.4 or else forget it.  The new version should be interesting, but either way the lens "only" gives 2/3 a stop more DOF control than the 25/1.4 on m43... not much, and certainly not a good trade given the bulk increase.  The Canon 50/1.8 might have a bit on the 45/1.8 for DOF control, but focus accuracy is a joke, contrast is hit and miss wide open (veiling flares something fierce).  Anything wider than standard angle, and you are SOL... m43 has as much (or more) DOF control.

For me it would have to be FF, and there are a number of used bodies out there (and cheaper classic f2.8/2/1.4 primes)
