Well, the only actual equivalent (in terms of DOF and light gathering) of 50/1.8 in m43 world is Voightlander 25/0.95, but it's nowhere near $200 (and manual focus at that).

You're right about DOF, but a 25mm f/1.8 lens designed for Micro Four Thirds has the same light-gathering as a 50mm f/1.8 lens designed for full-frame (35mm). The larger lens gathers 4 times as much light, but the light is spread over an image circle 4 times as large.
