When money is tight, what is fun on bodies like the EPM1 are any 50mm 1.8, amy 135 mm f2.8 and the common 70-210 or 80-200 zoom, attached with a suitable inexpensive adapter. All should be dirt cheap, if not almost free. from hobbyists who bought them 30-40 years ago and have them sitting forgotten in attics. Maybe people in Scandinavia value these pieces more. In the USA, I see them in yard sales and thrift shops for $5.

You can get nice shots off the 50 and 135's, and while the zooms are usually mediocre, they can still work.
