There are no plans for a lens this cheap in the near future. The 20mm may drop close to $200 in the used market as people may now be more drawn to the 25mm Oly, but you'll have to wait and keep an eye on it.

The reason there are no lenses as cheap as the canon EF 50mm 1.8 for other formats, is simply that it's a cheap-ass lens in every sense of the word. Bad build, bad and noisy AF, old 1990s design that is very soft wide open... M43 glass is more expensive, but you get what you pay for, generally speaking.
