Sorry for the double post... There is an MFT chart from a spanish site:

So it seemingly has sharper corners than the 45mm wide open. Looks pretty good to me!

Hmm seems like it is slightly weaker than the PL25mm in the center across the range, but maybe slightly sharper in the corners at f/1.8 and f/2, but slightly weaker again in the corners at f/2.8 on. I guess a question of rendering, do you need the extra speed and what the small price difference means to you (and if the size/weight different matters).

It would be a much easier choice if the price was $299 or $349 instead. But, meh. Doesn't effect me. It does seem like a very nice lens though.
