You need to see the E-M5 with the Pany 20mm pancake.  Nice lens, lovely  package.

True but he would like to shoot a lot in low light so I can't really recommend the Pany 20mm in Combo with the OM-D. I have it myself and it's focusing rather slow and sometimes AF is huntig in low light.

In bright light it's not an issue.

But for lowlight, I can recommend the Olympus 17mm 1.8 much more than the Pany 20mm, at least when using the OM-D.

The OM-D with either the Lumix 25mm 1.4 or the Olympus 75mm f1.8 are even better choices than the 17mm since they are even sharper.  These are my favorite two OM-D available light lenses.  I just sold my 17mm because I think the Lumix 25mm f1.4 is a better lens for much the same price, size and weight.  See my reviews in my cruises-and-cameras.com blog.
