Oly 25mm f1.8 289...Panny 25mm f1.7 159.

WEX prices......Go figure.

I eagerly await a comparative review.

I suspect that may be a pricing error....it's listed for around $249 in the US as a discounted pre-order price. $299 thereafter.

With that logic, all prices would be less.

Price was still 159 late yesterday evening, so I added one to a basket and briefly contemplated buying it - 160 for a nice 25mm sounds too good to be true. But then sanity prevailed - I already have three lenses that can do 25mm and I can't imagine this one being significantly different or better than the others.
