Which primes would you keep for GM1

Recently I purchased 12-40 zoom lens to use with my E-M5. I also have primes:

12 1.2

20 1.7

45 1.8

In future I plan to get GM1 as a replacement for X-Z2 compact camera. Since 12-40 (for me) can replace my primes, I am considering selling primes to fund purchase of other equipment.

But when I get GM1, I think primes will be much more useful than heavy 12-40, which is big even on E-M5.

For 45 1.8 I know I don't use it, since for portraiture I would use full frame kit. I also believe I do not need fast 12mm prime, if 12-32 which come with GM1 is good enough at 12mm. Anyone compared these two? But 12 2.0 looks is so nicely made, especially with sunshade attached...

So, should I keep 20 1.7 ?
