great photos!

I recently switched to OM-D for a lighter travel setup... I'm planning on going to nepal later on this year. My current lens selection is the pan 12-35mm and oly 40-150. I want to pick up a smaller lens that is a prime, tossing up between the pan 14 f2.5, oly 17 f1.8 and oly 45 f1.8. I'd be interested to hear your suggestions...

12-35 sounds good. I could use a sharper than the 12-50 lens on my trip. If cost is not an issue, that is a good choice.

Of the 3 primes you have listed I have experience only with 45/1.8 and that I can very highly recommend! I also had the panny 20/1.7 which was good but I suspect the oly 17/1.8 would do a better job because it is wider (better for smaller spaces) and focuses faster. It depends what you want to shoot: for streets snaps and portraits, I would go for 45/1.8. For indoors (temples, museums, etc.) I would pick 17/1.8.
