Since I also shoot with Pentax gear I have the DA 40mm pancake lens that I also use with the E-PL1 via an adapter. The Pentax 40mm makes a great portrait lens and it's fantastically sharp wide open. Since it's a modern lens without an aperture ring I have to use gaffer tape to hold the aperture arm open and therefore can only use this lens wide open with the E-PL1, but it's still amazing.

I'd love to see Pentax (Hoya) manufacture the DA 40mm f/2.8 and DA 70mm f/2.4 primes for the Micro 4/3 mount. I seriously doubt it will ever happen, but I can dream.

Those compact Pentax primes will go perfect with the small micro 4/3 cameras.
