lens for Portraits on m43: a bit confused


I have read hundreds of post on this forum about portraits lens, but I am now a bit

I will try to be very precise on what I need, and I hope someone can help me out.

All I need to use it for is for portraits

1) Budget: Anything up to and around 1500 Euros. Also a 100 Euro lens could be fine

2) I just need the lens to be sharp at f/2.0 (not tack sharp, but good enough for portraits) Ex example my Nikon 50mm 1.4 at 1.4 is not good enough, but it is a f/1.8.

3) Excellent boken at f/2.0 (or lower)

4) Can be a manual focus or AF lens

5) As tiny as possible given the specs. I do not want to carry around 500gr of lens.

6) If MF I'd like a nice build quality (not necessary thought)

Hopefully should this make you advice easier.

Many thanks
