An image for m4/3 angle of view comparisons

If you want a street photography wide, native primes include the 20mm f/1.7 and the 17.5mm f/1.8

Landscape/architecture wides include the 14mm f/2.5 and 12mm f/2.0.

The 7.5mm f/3.5 (Samyang manual focus) and 8mm f/3.5 are the fisheyes

3 wide zooms are the 12-50mm f/2.8, the 9-18mm f/4-5.6, and the 7-14mm f/4.

I happen to think the 14mm f/2.5 is an excellent choice - inexpensive ($160 on Ebay), compact, sharp, with the major flaw being heavy barrel distortion that robs it of a bit of sharpness once corrected in camera or post.
