Re: Thanks for all the great feedback!

Actually I thought the 20mm  F1.7 Panasonic on my OM-D was a great combo, but mounted on the PL5 (Not too dissimilar from what you are asking re: PL1)it is extremely fast, sharp and not too wide (I have a 12 mm Oly which is not a "pancake"). For me it a versatile and very usable combo that can go anywhere (even a big pocket, although the "rifle" slings are my current favorite mode of carriage now)  The lens performs better than the kit zooms which are bigger and bulkier.
