I really like the Oly ƒ/1.8 primes, and I was thinking could I get by with just those primes?
I suspect the answer is "no".
It seems like there is too much gap between the 17 ƒ1.8 and the 45 ƒ/1.8.

The last film SLR kit I used back in 2004 was a Nikon F2AS with 24mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4, 85mm f1.4 and 180mm f2.8. I never felt like I was short anything. Every 50mm lens I ever owned wound up rarely or never being used.

I think Olympus has it pretty well covered. Get the Panny 25/1.4 if you really think you need it.
