Not for concert but same dilemma...

I went with the Pany knowing I would lose the stop+ of light.  I am so happy with the decision, other than in close quarters it has lived on my OMD for walk around Museum visits and even larger family gatherings.  The weather sealed peace of mind is great.  The OMD has such a nice IQ that a bump to ISO and the added range of the zoom is nice.  I have an 85mm f1.4 that I love and used it to see how I would function with a longer prime and it was too constraining for me, in my uses.

i was concerned about CA and fringing as well, but in the right conditions and even some harsh light I have been pleased to not have it so evident as many threads make it out to be.

You cannot go wrong with either, but consider your uses.
