Only 700$ to spend on lenses for Pen-F. Recommendations?

Hello I’m new to MFT system and photography in general and getting my first decent camera a Pen-f in black next week (quite stoked!). I’m still undecided about the lenses though. Current fund situation only allows me to spend in the range of 600-700$ for the lenses.

Here are lenses I’m considering with their current prices on Amazon.

1. Zuiko 17mm 1.8= 470$

2. Panasonic 25mm 1.7= 148$

3. Panasonic 12-32 mm. pancake zoom= 240$

4. Panasonic 20mm. 1.7 pancake prime= 268$

I’d like to dedicate the Pen-f only to small primes and small zooms and slowly build up my collection. Will be using the camera for shooting street, travel, family vacations, some nature landscapes, temples and historic monuments.

So from the list above, should I get all three Panasonics (total of 656$) or the Zuiko 17mm with the Panny 25 (total 618$) or maybe the small panny zoom? Or something entirely different? I can’t decide...Please help!
