Although you have the 25 1.7, you don't mention its usage.

17mm is the one prime missing from your lenses.

I think, for the type of indoor portraits you are considering, especially when wanting a second person not that close to the first, 17mm would be a better FL

Go for the 17 1.2.

I am looking forward to receiving mine - says it is ready for shipment, so hopefully, not too long now!

I use 25 1.7 from time to time, but I it might be too tight - in some sense, it's neither here nor there - not the kind of perspective that 35mm gives, and not the kind of compression that 85mm gives. It is very neutral. Though, I still like it and always trying to use it more. Have used it for some portraits. The bokeh seems to be a bit busy though. I also thought of going for 25 pro instead of 17mm, but I think 17mm might be more interesting in terms of the perspective and 45mm in terms of bokeh. But again, 25mm might be the best middle ground and might give me a bit of both of those lenses.
