The only true "affordable" prime are the Sigma trio: 19mm, 30mm, 60mm. I recommend buying:

"Poor Students" Editions

  • Sigma 19mm (36mm FOV) for walk-around prime and
  • Sigma 60mm (120mm FOV) for Shadow DOF portraits

"Middle Class" Editions

  • Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 (40mm FOV) for walk-around prime
  • Olympus 45mm f/1.8 (90mm FOV) for Shadow DOF portraits

"$$ Rich Baster $$" Editions

  • Olympus 12mm F/2.0 (24mm FOV) wide angle prime
  • Olympus 25mm f/1.8 (50mm FOV) for walk-around prime
  • Olympus 75mm f/1.8 (150mm FOV) for super narrow outdoor potrait
