Agreed, I had rather hoped that it would be much closer in price to the 45mm instead of nearly twice the price.

Huh? At B&H, they are the exact same price:

Actually, that's the problem, regardless of what Mark said. One of these two lenses deserves to be much cheaper, if not both. Either the 25/1.8 should be priced less than the Nikon 50/1.8 G lens, or the 45 should be priced less than that. That Nikon, a very good lens, sells for a little over $200 and covers a much bigger image circle.

What is the justification for each Olympus lens costing twice as much just to cover the 4/3 sensor?
