Met a guy yesterday who had the an older Canon FD 50mm 1.4 on his GF2, he said it takes amazing photos and cost him only $90 including the lens mount.

I'm sure it does, but I'll wager his photos are of things that weren't moving. It takes time and technique to manually focus on the u4/3 platform.

I would like a new lens for mostly street photography while travelling around Europe... Does anyone have any retro lens recommendations for me?

I think of street photography as the art of taking snapshots. It's best accomplished with a fast AF lens. I'd recommend the Panasonic 20/1.7.
