Hi,

that's definitely what I'd go for. While this lens does not seem to be the sharpest around, it is definitely THE street photography lens of the system (small, fast, fast focusing, manual focus with markings for zone focusing if needed) and the  E-M5 is itself an awesome camera. Inconspicuous, sensual, fast focusing, rugged, customizable and equipped with a sensor matching that of all the existing APS-C camera except those based on the famous Sony sensor.

Oh god why is this lens that expensive

If you're thinking about buying a fuji x100s, I was wondering if you've considered the Olympus OM-D with 17mm f1.8 lens. It has the cool "tap to focus" function and flip out screen which I find to be useful when I'm trying to be discrete. I like using the viewfinder, but having the OM-D screen allows me to actually frame the shot, when I'm shooting from the waist.
