Best prime for low light? Will be buying an EPL5

So I've made up my mind, thanks to all of you for your opinions in my other threads.   The EPL5 in my opinion is the best bang for the buck and has the features I like.

Now, I am thinking of swapping the kit lens, for the 12-32 Pany lens next year.

However I don't think the 12-32 will be as good a performer in low light as a fast prime, and as such I am starting my research on what to get.

I was looking at the Oly 17mm 1.8 as its the perfect focal length for your take everywhere lens, but when reading the reviews while its AF is lightening fast, the quality of the lens is something not everyone is happy about.   I'm also considering the 20MM Pany 1.7 which has a slightly longer focal length (which I'm not thrilled about especially indoors in tight rooms) but I haven't messed around to know practically if that focal distance would be an issue.  The AF issues on the Panny though worries me as I'd use this lens for my video's too.   I do like the pancake size though.

Just wondering if there are any other opinions out there?
