Lens - AF100

Hello all!

I'm a high school filmmaker and after a long time of saving up on jobs and getting my dad to meet me halfway, I'm finally buying a Panasonic AF100!

I went to a local camera store, where an Olympus rep was visiting for the day. I was just there to check out the camera that day, but the Olympus guy set me up with a very nice 45mm f/1.8 lens at a price of $300.

Now, this is the first camera I'll be getting in which the lens isn't stationary, so I'm new to lenses, but from what the Olympus rep told me, f/1.8 is very good in low-light and the lens is very sharp.

I later began to wonder if the lens had stabilization built-in, so I Googled it and nope, no stabilization. I immediately knew this would be bad considering I plan to use the camera for 95% video. So I was wondering if anybody knew any prime lenses (hopefully around $300 or less) that:

-Had fantastic shallow depth of field.
-Sharp, no loss of HD quality.
-Good in low-light.
-Micro 4/3
