Ah you all posted while I was typing

Thanks for your advice! Is there places you could recommend on-line for sourcing used within the UK or that ship here?

Not in the UK...I would try Ebay.......just about any 50 will work and then get the adapter from ebay to match.

Also, ask family and friends if they have any old film cameras lying around unused in closests you can have....if so, they will usually have a lens (or two) with them and often a fast(ish) 50mm....or 35mm or 28 ETC.

So general consensus looks like the Sigma 19mm!

I would love the 45 1.8 but it is still a little steep for me at this point, however legacy lenses are something that hadn't even crossed my mind, Is there certain ones that work best with micro 4/3. Does using adapters and such affect the focal length of the lens?

Thanks all so much!
