It's valuable to have a good prime lens in the lens set.Considering that you already have 14-42mm focus distance covered, how about Sigma 60mm f/2.8 (250$) for the portraits? If low-light capabilities are your main interest, how about more versatile Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 (350$) or SLR Magic 35mm f/1.4 (300$)?
