I'd get the 12-32mm - for one simple reason

And that reason is "12mm."

The difference between a zoom lens that starts at 12mm and one that starts at 14mm is HUGE.

Especially for a walk around lens, you will find the wide end very useful. The other two lenses will take you out further to 42 or 45mm, but will you really need it when you already have a 45mm f/1.8 lens?

This looks like a no brainer for me, because the price difference is so small for you to select the 12-32mm lens over the slightly less expensive 14-42mm.
