New Wide Prime, which one to choose?


I am looking at the following lenses and wondered if anyone owned or had experience of using them? I don't have a huge amount of money to spend, I have actually spent pretty much all my money on booking a 7 month trip around the world so I want to weigh up IQ against price.

* Sigma 19mm f2.8 [£150]

* Olympus 17mm f1.8 [£360]

* Panasonic 20mm f1.7 [£180 for old version]

* Panasonic 14mm f2.5 [£150]

I currently own the Olympus 17mm f2.8 but it is a bit soft and not great. Want to replace it and wondered which to choose? Will probably sell my Oly 14-42mm and Oly 17mm f2.8.
