You are comparing apples & oranges! The lumix lens is micro 4/3 the olympus is for their 4/3 camera. (using a mirror body camera for wide angle or fisheye photography is *stupid* in my humble opinion -- the lens ends up being longer, wider, heavier and spendier just to make room for the mirror behind it -- but they made the lens anyway....)

Please compare the Lumix with the new oly f/1.8 micro 4/3 lens.
