With the info provided, I'm not sure how anyone can give you an answer, or perhaps I'm not understanding what characteristics you are looking for in a lens.

We're fortunate to have a wide ranges of lenses available for the micro 4/3 system. Based on my experiences as I've gone from kit lenses to a couple of pro lenses and some prime lenses, for a general purpose lens, the Oly 12-40 Pro is a good choice and is my all around lens along with the recently acquired 40-150 Pro. I'm also very pleased with the Oly 17 1.8, 45mm 1.8, 30mm macro and 60mm macro lenses. But there are other lenses I'm sure I would enjoy using.

I suggest providing a little more info on specifically what you are looking for and I'm sure you will get a lot of suggestions.

Meanwhile, thanks for the reply. I am essentially looking for a lens between 40 / 60mm (in Fullframe) that has an excellent rendering of colors and details ... then, as mentioned, if it is not autofocus it is not a problem

Take a look at the Voigtländer 25mm f 0.95. It has everything you’re looking and then some.

Beautiful rendering and color signature. Very nice bokeh. It even focuses at about 6” from the subject. It has exceptional build quality and is a real pleasure to use, to boot! An excellent lens!
