You claim that the 17 might be a "waste" as it overlaps the zoom you already have. Unfortunately, so does pretty much every other lens you mentioned (12mm F2, 17mm F1.8, 25mm F1.4/1.8). The 45mm isn't "too long" for indoors, it really depends on the space you have available indoors.

The Panasonic 25mm F1.4 gives you a full 2 stop advantage over your zoom lens. The Panasonic 20mm 1.7 would be the most compact by far, and offers a 1.5 stop over the zoom lens. Both lenses are ridiculously sharp.
