Fast, affordable, standard prime for 4/3

I'm after a new prime lens for my E-500.  Size is no concern but ideally I'm looking for something around f1.8, around 25mm and under £150 used.

I've seen the Olympus 25mm F2.8 pancake lens which I seem to be able to get for around £100-£130.  It's defo in my considerations but I would prefer something faster and I have no concern over it's size.  I would prefer a faster, larger 25mm prime.  The E-500 isn't really going to get any smaller with a small lens on it haha.

I've seen Sigma do a 24mm f1.8 prime for 4/3 but these seem very hard to come by and when they do come up for sale, tend to go out of my budget.

Are there any lenses I'm missing.  It's hard searching ebay and the like for 4/3 kit these days as people don't seem to know how to list them and any 4/3 kit often gets muddled in with m4/3 kit.

Any suggestions welcome!

Olympus E-5
