Canon 50mm f/0.95 M-mount
If you care about your money you will not spend more than $2.000 for the Canon 50mm f/0.95 M-mount lens manual focusing lens! Nevertheless there is a flickr group (with 576 members!) that has a nice picture collection. The name of the group is “Canon 50mm f/0.95 “Dream Lens”. You can find some image taken with MicroFourThirds cameras (like here for example with the E-PL1).
Now it’s time for a little bit of camera porn: See the lens attached on the Panasonic GH1 (Fredmiranda) and on the Olympus E-P1 (DChome).
You can get the lens on eBay (click here to check out current auctions)

Canon 50mm f/1.2 FD-mount
Canon FD mount lenses are generally high-quality and also cheap lenses. So don’t mind to use the Canon 50mm f/1.2 FD-mount on your MicroFourThirds camera! Some image samples are available here on dpreview forum or flickr.
And now again some cameraporn: The lens on the GF1 (Flickr), on the E-P1 (Rangefinderforum)
