Congratulations on your new camera  From what I've seen of the epl-5 it's a great camera. I'd get used to your camera and kit lens first then look at primes however primes depend on budget and what you want a prime for.
Here are the list of the cheaper primes but still offer excellent value.
Panasonic 14mm f2.5
Sigma 19mm f2.8
Sigma 30mm f2.8
Olympus 45mm f1.8
Most people seem to agree that the Olympus 45mm f1.8 is a fantastic lens for the money and it would be the first prime I'd recommend. However if your shooting indoors then maybe the Sigma 19mm would be a better option.
The four lenses I've listed as far as I'm aware (prime wise) are the cheapest but certainly have excellent image quality.  There is also a deal on both Sigmas ($200 I think) which is fantastic value.

Good luck with your decision

Howie
