Drop $350 on a 45mm prime when you've already got the 14-42mm kit lens?

The 45mm f/1.8 would not be my next lens purchase unless I was heavily into portraiture.  The field of view is too narrow for general shooting in my opinion.  If I were looking for an all-around low light lens, for about the same price I would start with the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7.
