Thanks for all the suggestions.

I think I need to look at the focal length I mostly use on the kit zoom to see where to go. It seems both the Panasonic 25mm and the Olympus 45mm get good reviews.

Otherwise I like to do some street photography. I was wondering which of the 2 is more used for that purpose.

If I had the option, I would like to new 12-35 and 35-100mm, but that is out of my range pricewise.

Olympus 45mm is a 90mm in focal length. There are two big problems using this focal length for street photography. The first problem is you will need greater distance between you and your subject. anyone could walk in between the shot. The second is the 90mm focal length is a telephoto. They will draw the background closer to the subject.

Panasonic 25mm is a 50mm in focal length and very popular for street photography.
