20 1.7...

This is any easy one...the Panasonic 20 1.7.  It's a bit wider than a normal 50mm so it makes an excellent general purpose lens.  I just don't like any of the m43 zooms, but I've not had a chance to use the Panasonic 12-35 f/2.8.

For street photography using m43, my other favorite lens is the Panasonic 14 2.5.  28mm is the perfect lenses for street shooting in the narrow streets of many European cities or in larger cities like New York where a wider FOV comes in handy.

I will take the DOF control of the fast m43 primes over the convenience of zooms any day but everybody is different.  Some prefer the fast framing options of zooms.
