Is the Panasonic 15mm f1.7 worth the money?

I have posted within some other threads that I'm interested in this lens but I'd like to get to a wider audience, hence posting this new thread.

I have the Panasonic GX85 and I do mainly photography of my fast moving kids, general out and about shots, travel, hiking/camping.

These are the lenses I have already:

  • Panasonic 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 kit lens
  • Panasonic 25mm F1.7 (may sell as I do get some out of focus shots)
  • Sigma 30mm F2.8 (don't use anymore)
  • Olympus 35mm macro 4/3rds
  • Panasonic 42.5mm F1.7

I'm going to add the 35-100mm f4-5.6 lens to the list soon as well.

My question is, is the 15mm f1.7 worth the cash considering I already have the 12-32 kit lens? It's $A588 here including a $50 Panasonic rebate.
