Advice: Which normal FOV lens to get

Hello all,

I am looking for prime lens advice. I got an E-PL5 about a year ago as my first serious camera with the 14-42mm and 40-150mm. That has left me wanting some low aperture higher quality primes.

I am planning on getting the 45mm 1.8 as it seems generally accepted as a great deal. However, I would appreciate your advice on what to get for a more 'normal' focal length. I am on a somewhat limited budget so was thinking of getting the panasonic 20 1.7, but would any of you suggest saving up and getting the Oly 17 or 25mm 1.8 instead taking into consideration I am just starting out?

Thanks for your help,
