Travel Kit Prime Set?

Hey all,

Just bought an E-PM2 for a sweet deal and currently have the kit lens. It's my new travel camera. I am going to either keep the kit lens or get a superzoom (sometimes I wish I could zoom more, but I am also weight-conscious), then I want to add some primes to complete a kit.

Here are the ones I am considering:

Oly 12mm f2

Oly 17mm f1.8

Pan 20mm f1.7

PanL 25mm f1.4

Oly 45mm f1.8

I generally shoot a lot of landscapes, street photography and family members. I don't think I would get more than two. Wondering what the best choices and combinations are.

Loving MFT so far. E-PM2 is amazing for the price I got it at ($350 new). Only thing I don't like is that I don't want to pay $900 for an ultrawide. I have the Sigma 8-16mm on my D90 kit and love that beastie (but not the weight!)
