Kind of a different fish. It's larger and heavier, with a conventional profile. 
It has more elements and good initial 
reviews. The Panny is a pancake, older design, fewer elements but many 
excellent reviews and a proven success with users.

Might just come down to focal length, 50mm eq. vs 40mm eq. Then if yo don't 
worry much about size, weight or price, 
there's the excellent Panny 25/1.4, with even more DOF control.

I've mostly used my 20/1.7 where I need speed for dark conditions, not for DOF, 
and in those circumstances the last 
little bit of IQ is seldom visible.

I also have the Oly 60/2.8 macro, which is tack sharp at normal distances, as 
well, and faster, more DOF control than 
the zooms at 120mm eq.

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
