Please a little help for a newcomer in 4/3 (lens related)

Hi Guys, I'm a long time user of this site, on the DLSR side of things. I've had/tried/borrowed/shot more bodies/models that I care to admit, from various manufacturers, though mostly CaNikon.

Though the ultimate camera remains the D700 for me (so far anyway, technology marches on...), the more it goes the less I feel like lugging my camera bag with me on vacation, and I'm really really ready to compromise a few things for a more portable setup (resolution is one, I hardly ever shoot my DSLRs at full res anyway !).

I'm set my mind on the new GX-1, as soon as the prices settle down a bit and availability is not an issue anymore (both things usually happening at the same time).

My MAIN application for my camera when I'm not traveling is portrait. So I need a fast prime that will somewhat compensate the smaller sensor to allow as shallow DOF as possible.

I was thinking of the Pany 20mm/1.7. Is that good ? ANY other suggestion (including older MF lenses, if you guys think MF is actually usable on the GX-1 for moving subjects ???).
I'd really be very interested in all suggestions.
Thanks a bunch !!
