Agree with others, the 45 f1.8 is too long for a general lens, I bought the OM-D with only the 45 as I didn't want the kit lens, with a view to buying the 17 f1.8 when it comes out. I've been walking around with it mainly trying to shoot street but just not getting in what I want and you can only back up so far so obviously not quite wide enough for street, well for my type of shooting anyway.

I tried out the 20 1.7 yesterday, AF seems fairly slow compared to the 45 and also the 17 f1.8 according to reviews coming out although if the 17 1.8 wasn't coming out I would probably get the 20 1.7.
