Maybe I'm nuts, but if the oly 25 IQ turns out to be comparable to the oly 45, I might consider selling my PL 25 for it. In this case, size might outweigh any slight IQ advantage and the slightly faster aperture.

Well, you *are* nuts Actually, I was facing the same conundrum and decided to add the 17mm to my kit to have something more pocketable, so I get what you're saying.

I think owners of the 20mm Panny will be quick to dump it for this one. It has similar sharpness, but no problem with CA or autofocus speed, so the size tradeoff would be more than worth it in that case.

I expect the appearance of the upcoming 15mm will have a similar effect, only this time it will be the owners of the 17mm Zuiko who will be migrating.
