I purchased the Oly 25mm as a replacement for my Panny 20mm due to the AF speed, but I find I prefer the rendering of the 20mm and possibly seems slightly sharper as well.

I know the Oly AF speed is faster, but I have seen it miss focus quite a few times on my EM10 and GX7, the 20mm is slower but more reliable in all light to be honest.

Anyone else feel the same about these 2 lenses ??

Who is going to buy both of those lenses?

Certainly not me.

I have the Lumix 20mm, excellent lens.

If I need the same thing but with superfast AF I'll just spend a third of the money on a Sigma.

I would, but only because the 25/1.8 would be a gift for my mother... And I'm still thinking whether it's worth it at all, as she already has the 12-35/2.8 (also a gift from her son).
