Hollyhocks, taken with my GH-2 wide open at f1.4. Can you believe how sharp this mother is?
If anyone around here has kept their 20mm I'd love to see some comparison shots using that and the 25mm.
The 20mm is still getting good prices on eBay for sellers so it is not a big investment to change. But is it worth the extra weight and size after one has become used to a pancake?
EDIT. I push the limits flarewise with the 20mm. Does anyone find the 25mm more tolerant?

It is difficult to justify owning both the 20/1.7 and the 25/1.4 but I did it! The 20 has several advantages over the 25 - it is cheaper and it is smaller. However, performance wise you'd be hard pressed to choose between them. That is why I can't bring myself to part with the 20/1.7.
Wonderful shot, Ron... I think it's my favorite portrait that you've done. Uber cinematic!

The boys and I were having cigars out on the deck while our new Shrink to Fit Levi's 501 jeans were drying on us.
Nice portraits, Ray and Ron.
Hmmm... the sales girl at the camera shop? Maybe I should consider changing
I don't care what gear I have.
