It's even slower on an Olympus body than it is on a Panasonic body and that may be half your issue.

Anyway, Micro Four Thirds justifies a lot of crappy lens widths, 15mm, 20mm, 75mm, what exactly are these? 30mm, 40mm and 150mm are just plain weird sizes.

Your prime lenses worth buying in terms of wide primes are the Olympus 12mm, and Panasonic 14mm in terms of normal primes you have the Olympus 17mm, PanaLeica 25mm and Olympus 25mm. Then you have the Olympus 45mm F/1.8 which is your 90mm portrait lens. You have the voightlander manual focus primes in between all of this, forget about the rest.
