Which walk around lens for GX9

Hi all

I've got G80/85 which I'm very happy with but have been looking for a small, light, walkaround camera for general use (landscapes, family, some video etc).

I've been considering a Fuji X100f (still looking at this as I've used Fuji before and been very happy with IQ) but am also considering a GX9 with a short lens (I've looked at and dismissed the LX100 for various reasons).

Lens options that I'm looking at (all Panasonic) are 20mm f1.7, 14mm f2.5 and as a short zoom the 14-42 f3.5-5.6. The GX9 is also being sold here in the UK with a 12-32 f3.5-5.6 which is another option.

I'm really seeking thoughts from forum members as to IQ on these lens. Probably, for my purposes, the 20mm might be a bit wide but if it was thought to be a lot better than the others it could be worth considering.

Many thanks in advance for any thoughts from anyone who has experience of these lenses.
