Sigma 30mm f.1.4 vs Olympus 25mm f1.8 vs Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4

Hi, I am in a bit of a pickle and I need your assistance.
In my kit I have Olympus M10 II and few lenses: PanaLeica 15mm f1.7, Olympus 45mm f1.8 (and kit lens Panasonic 12-32mm and Olympus 40-150mm). I used to have Panasonic 25mm f1.7, but got rid of it, because it was bad copy, that had some problems. And I found myself missing this focal length!

And so I bought all the lenses in the title, so I can test them out. I need to keep only one and I can't decide what to choose.

Did any of you have experience with these lenses?

Sigma 30mm
+ brightness (f1.4)
+ sharpness o _ O
- big and heavy
- bit tighter
- terrible CA wide open

PanaLeica 25mm
+ nice colours
+ bright (f1.4)
+ leica ?
- loud - on my Olympus I hear loud clicks and sometimes some rattling sounds
- lens hood sucks

Olympus 25mm
+ tiny !!
+ fast focus
+ not much CA
- slower f stop (f1.8)
- uglier

Also I am thinking about replacing my 45mm Olympus with 56mm Sigma - feel its better for portraits and it would also make 30mm Sigma better choice with the focal length? Sorry I am just rambling at this point. I don't know I would love to keep them all but my wife would kill me :-D.
