I'm about to make this jump myself so I sort of asked a similar question in a slightly different way. I asked people what they had in their camera bag.

The idea being if its in their bag they probably use it, therefore it is probably reasonably good.

About 30 or so people listed their kit - i.e. body and lenses that they carry in their bags.
I compiled the results on about 25 of the responses the second page.

These were the top 4 of about 90 reported lenses and about 30 various MFT bodies.

There were 12 EM-5s bodies, so I'd say most people who had an EM-5 and responded went with the 12-50mm.

11 x Olympus 45mm f1.8
9 x Olympus 12-50mm f3.5-6.3
9 x Panasonic 20mm 1/7
6 x Panasonic 14-45mm f3.5-5.6

Based on all that I reckon 45mm 1.8 would be a good bet.
