Re: 25 mm and 45 mm and 15 mm body cap and 9 mm body cap on the G9

You might want to check prices on a used 42.5 f/1.7, which would give you DFD, Dual IS, a closer focus distance, and a hood and pouch.  I've had both and think the IQ is very close between it and the 45mm f/1.7, but for a G9 I would definitely recommend the 1.7 over the 1.8.

I've not owned or used either the 25 f/1.8 or f/1.7, but my impression from others here is that the Oly might hold the edge.

I've never considered buying either of the body cap lenses.  They strike me as more of a novelty, so I'd focus on what you want on the other two.

My two cents.
