I don't know about "cheaper". The Epson R-D1 and variants were sold originally for almost $3000 and are still drawing prices of $1500-$1800 regularly. And they're out of production too, so people who like them and are content with their capabilities will likely push the collectibility factor up. Leica M8s can be had for $2200-2400 now, which isn't really that much more money.

"Forever is too long for the human imagination to comprehend."

If you intend in the future to buy an M-bayonet body of any kind, it makes sense to purchase lenses which are compatible. But those lenses might not be the best choice for a Micro-FourThirds body. Are you willing to compromise on present quality for the potential of future quality.

Any M lens 35mm or longer works great on u 4/3. Better than most u 4/3 native lenses.
