What is the cheapest and most valuable lens for the m43 lens?

Olympus 1.8/45mm - 90mm eq, portrait lens, beats *beep* out of everything else on price/performance. Got mine for 260€.

Panasonic 1.7/20mm. A must have. Or 2.5/14mm is you prefer it wider (albeit slower aperture). Both are relatively expensive - but a pancake lens is a must have. I have the 20mm, because I do not like much the 28mm eq FL. You can find them for around 320€ and 220€ respectively.

And I think you shouldn't disregard the kit lens - Panasonic 12-32mm. If you are coming from APS-C DSLR, kits might have a bad name. But on m43 they are pretty OK. And 12-32mm is one of the best. On top of that: it is matched to the GM1 dimensions. On my GX7 it looks a bit lost.
