Is f2.8 enough?

Hi all,

I'm using the standard 14-42 kit zoom with and E-500, set to 25mm to mimic a 50mm prime.

I'm wondering whether the f2.8 of the 25mm pancake is going to improve the reduction in DOF and low-light performance significantly?

With the kit zoom the max aperture is around f5.6 I think.

I'm cost-conscious and read that the E-500 is difficult to use with a manual focus OM set-up.

Thanks

Richard
