Ordered an Olympus OM-D E-M10 and the 12-40mm 2.8 lens. One lens I used from time to time on the Canon gear was the 50 1.8. It's a great lens for $100. Is there a favorite equivalent wide aperture inexpensive lens that will work well on the Olympus?

I see the Panasonic 20mm 1.7 pancake, but the cost is $300+

Olympus 25 1.8 is near $400

They're probably built better than the nifty 50, but anyone know if an inexpensive (under $200) 1.8 50mm equivalent might be coming?

An inexpensive (under $200) 1.8 50mm equivalent will not be nifty.

any lens with F2 or faster will not be nifty. Nifty under $200 can be only manual focus lens, and you can find on eBay some of them today.

If f2.8 is nifty, look at Sigmas 19 or 30 - they have AF
