The Panasonic is obviously faster, and probably a better constructed lens. It might even be better optically. We won't know until we see a few professional reviews.

The Olympus is obviously smaller, lighter and cheaper.

I think we have two very nice lenses here, which should provide good options for M4/3 users. I'd be happy with either one.

Yup, two really nice options! (Not bashing either, in case it came off that way.)

After playing with my friend's 25/1.4, I decided it was too big and heavy for my m43 wants, especially for the price. The 25/1.8 will be nicer with respect to size, weight and price, but I still really wanted a little pancake.
