So, I decided to go for the Olympus 17/1.8 as my first prime lens. I have looked at the Oly 12/2.0 but it's out of my reach. I also looked at the Pana 14/2.5 but it's a bit slow IMO. I wish Pana or Oly will come out with 14/1.8 and that would be the ideal prime lens for me.

You are very welcome and I hope you enjoy your new lens!

There is a Panasonic 15/1.7 in development, and it is suppose to be a relatively small pancake to suit the GM1.  But there have only been mockups shown so far and no one really expects to see one until the fall.  Plus they put "Leica" on the lens so it might prove to be pricey.
