I do that with a big hot shoe flash bounced off of the ceiling, where possible. it casts much nicer light on the subject from above and keeps the background mostly ambient. But yes, even then it isn't exactly discrete.

As to your request for recommendations:

Olympus 12/2
Panasonic 25/1.4
Olympus 45/1.8

Personally I would just wait a week or two. Allegedly Sony, Olympus and Panasonic as well as third parties will all be announcing new lenses soon.

I'm not planning to buy till at least next year (hence why the X-E1 is on the list). But thanks for the recommendations. It seems like everyone has the exact same three primes for MFT, hehe.
