Expensive? Oh yes, but I've seen some really, really nice images shot with it on Olympus DSLR's over on both the Olympus and Panasonic forums at DRReview.
I use the PanaLeica 25mmF1.4 a lot in low light, and it is indeed a great lens. But what folks tend to forget sometimes is that at F1.4 you don't have squat for Depth of Field. I can't imagine using an F/1 very often - the subject would need to fit in a very narrow plane of focus.
