First Prime Lens for Olympus EM1 II

Hi there,

I bought Olympus EM1 Mark 2 with 12-40mm F2.8 Pro Lens.

This is my first camera with interchangeable lens ever.

I mainly used this when I travel.

In the past couple of months, I used this to take picture when I travel and a lot for videos. Awesome AF and Stabilisation.

I'm thinking of getting another lens. A prime lens with larger aperture for picture.

I've shortlisted to these lens below:

Panasonic Leica 12mm f/1.4

Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7

Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4

Olympus 12mm f/2.0

Olympus 17mm f/1.8

Olympus 25mm f1.2 (too expensive)

My friend suggested to get 25mm (equivalent 50mm) as my first lens. The Leica 25mm. But I think I can get similar result with 12-40mm?

Perhaps Olympus 17mm f1.8 or Panasonic 12mm f1.4 to get that extra wider focus?

If anyone can give me an idea and recommendation, that would be awesome.

Thank you, cheers!
