Works nicely, no problems, loads faster than 4.3.

You haven't said why you want to change from those zooms. If its image quality, I note you have a 7D. If I were you I'd get a 5DmkIII - you'll notice a dramatic difference over the 7D. The IQ of my 7D was less than the 5D classic (which I subsequently upgraded to a 5dMkII and which is worlds superior to the 7D).
Primes are nice, I love them and use them parallel to my zooms.
But as someone suggested before: if IQ is that counts, take a FF first.
My 2 cents.
I've been shooting with the 50 f/1.4 for a long time now, and I still do not know what people mean when they say the AF is not reliable.IF you drop it while the lens is focused on something close that that lip sticks out, it moves the gears off its track and it is screwy thereafter. So I never take off the hard plastic hood.
I haven't looked at the Zeiss yet.
How are you guys liking this lens compared to the 50mm 1.8 canon? I'd like to get the pancake but if it isn't as sharp or produce comparable images, I feel like it isn't worth it but that is me.I like the pancake better (build, bokeh, AF), but 50/1.8'II seems to be a little bit sharper at f/2.8 when comparing at 100%.
Unfortunatly, no long glass is available yet for micro 4/399% (or more?) of long lens use is for sports or wildlife. Micro 4/3 isn't quite there yet. The AF systems, while improving, currently isn't suited to this. For example, its very, very difficult to get a good bird in fight shot. Most people who can get a decent shot are using old-school manual focus lenses with adapters. But, the next OM-D should move things up a notch. Panasonic are also promising something special. Following that, I'd be surprised if none of the m43 lens manufacturers (and there are 20 or so companies involved) didn't release a decent 200mm (AKA 400mm) or 300mm (AKA 600mm) lens. After all, the real interest in micro four thirds lenses is in fast primes.
Ignoring arguments about aperture equivalence and sensor noise, an M43 300mm/f4 is going to be a lot more affordable and easier to handhold and use than the Canon 600mm.
