    Its only $200 more than the 20, but 2/3 stop faster and likely better optically, requiring less correction. I rather think it's an interesting lens

    Are we talking about the same lens - the 20/1.7 is about US$480 in the UK whereas the 25/1.4 is US$1,450

    almost US$ 1,000 more

    Bill, I think the $1,450 you are referring to is the 4/3 version. The one that's $200 more than the 20 is the new Micro 4/3 version.

    Christina, thanks for the heads up! If I still had my mu43 camera, I'm sure I'd be lusting after this lens. Can't wait to see who shows up with some photos here.:wink:
