Thank You ALL! I have made my decision, and I apologize...

that I cannot reply to each and everyone that responded but I have read all your posts, a few several times to digest everything and there are a lot to digest. I use zoom about 90% of my shoot and one poster suggested that if I can go back and take a look at the FL of the majority of my photos and see what's the most FL used then try to base it on which of the 2 choices. I did that on my LX3 photos and over 50% were taken in less than 40mm, (24-35 to be exact).

So, I decided to go for the Olympus 17/1.8 as my first prime lens. I have looked at the Oly 12/2.0 but it's out of my reach. I also looked at the Pana 14/2.5 but it's a bit slow IMO. I wish Pana or Oly will come out with 14/1.8 and that would be the ideal prime lens for me.

Again, I want to THANK each and everyone that took their time to reply my post and I do appreciate your inputs.
