Next, Just walking around taking snapshots of whatever catches my eye. I find a lot of things interesting that most people would never bother to take a photo of. So I guess you could say I like those off-the-wall artsy shots.

I like to take the same kinds of shots.

So here's the lenses I'm considering:

Olympus 12mm f/2 - The 24mm fov seemed wide enough for me when I was doing full-frame.

Olympus 45mm f/1.8 - seems like it would make a nice portrait lens. and I love primes!

I have these two. They, along with the 20/1.7 are pretty much always in my pocket when I'm walking around doing the above sort of photography. I think you'll be happy with them.

I don't have any experience with the rest of your choices, but beware that the voigtlander is a manual focus lens. For baby pics you might want something fast, normal-ish and auto focus, like the 25/1.4 or 20/1.7 or 17/1.8. The 45/1.8 is excellent for portraits but sometimes too long for indoors/family/social.
