went out of stock again just after I had it in my cart...dependable resource has their price up to 374.18 now
The price on the leica 25/1.4 through amazon is now at 499 but it seems like it will allow backorder from amazon if you pick through the list of merchants:

best all around prime lens IMHO for any portable system camera
i also have the 25mm leica which is slighter better but costs more than double the price
i just "upgraded" to the nex-5n and honestly the lens selection is severely lacking for that camera, im waiting for the sony 35mm f1.8

|CheapBastardX10||I went for the more expensive Panasonic/Leica 25/1.4, which had a price drop 2 weeks back. I like the size and wide angle of the 20mm but I just can't stand the noise and slowness of AF. If compact size is important to you and you don't care too much for fast AF and you don't do a lot of video, then this is an excellent deal. Ebay is selling them for around $250 for used so $305 new with 1yr warranty is awesome. Like someone said, invest in lens as they keep their value well. Also, it is the lens that is more important than the camera. I would recommend the 25/1.4 if you can afford it as it is a fantastic lens. My favorite of the m43 right now. Saving up for the Oly 45/1.8 to complete 14/2.5, 25/1.4 set of prime.|

I have had this lens for a few months, and it has quickly become the default lens on my camera. Really sharp, very fast (f/1.7). If you have a micro four-thirds camera and want a good prime lens that gives you that standard-wide angle of view, you can't go wrong.
$305 is a great price, the best I've ever seen on this. Lenses also generally hold their value very well, so if you use this for a few years and want to resell, it should still fetch a very good price.

|lzboy||Update: Amazon is in stock and price dropped to 305.68!|

|b534202||Good deal. These were going for over $400 back when Panasonic didn't bother to stock the USA with any lenses.|

Amazon is out of stock, however DependableResource (fulfilled by Amazon) still has a few in stock at 305.68. You don't get the 2% back in rewards, but I saved paying sales tax which is a better deal.
