There are

for example the Voigtländer Nokton 17,5/0,95 and 25/0,95 (great bokeh), the Samyang 7,5/3,5 fisheye, the Sigma 19/2,8 and 30/2,8 (cheap alternatives to oly and pana primes), the SLR Magic Noktor 50/0,95, and a whole series of Zeiss compact primes (prices from $3500 and upwards) with probably excellent quality. Also there are Holga and Lensbaby for m4/3 to play with!

Personally I miss good zooms to reasonable prices, as a former Canon owner. No third party manufacturers make any as far as I know. A Sigma 8-16 in m4/3 version would be nice.
