Robin Wong has compared the Panny 25mm 1.4 to the Olympus 25mm 1.8.

There are some interesting points. First, the Panasonic required a slower shutter speed at the same aperture, meaning there may be a difference in the way Olympus measures their f/stop and the way Panasonic does.

f/stop is I think pretty much a calculated thing rather than a measured thing. It's an fixed formula, not something that's up for debate. T-stop however can change for any given f-stop. I don't know the optical constructions of both but if for instance the oly had less elements it might have a slightly better comparative t-stop.

Same number of groups, same number of elements. Different configuration.

Might be down to coating etc then.
