Can anyone speak to long exposure work at night with the 14mm prime? I'm hesitant to spend hundreds of bucks is this is an issue with all of the electronic mirco 4/3 lenses.

I have no experience with this m43 equipment, but I know that some of the newer Canon EF(-S) lenses have internal flare problems for very long exposures because of a led that is part of the lens mechanism. This is mostly an issue with IR-converted cameras, because these LEDs have IR wavelength. I'm just mentioning this to point out that there can be quite unexpected causes for flare problems nowadays ...

btw, if flare from light sources just outside the frame is a problem, I guess one can find (or make?) a good lens hood for the 2.5/14mm.
