The 17/1.8 and the 45/1.8 for some added reach when needed.

Pl 25mm 1.4 I just really like rendering this lens gives I also enjoy the 17mm 1.8 but prefer a nifty fifty to a 35mm in general.

Sigma 30mm f2.8. Cost me $110. Perfect focal length. Sharp, small, light.

I have this on my EM1.1. It's pretty good, if a little long, but that gives one a slightly different perspective.

Re: 15/1.7

One more for the 15 f1.7. The 20 autofocus is OK if you have good contrast on the subject, but becomes hesitant in low light.

Based upon actual usage, easily the Pany 20/1.7 II, currently the core of my backpack / travel photo kit, for compact size + versatility. Typically pair the 20 with my PL 15/1.7 (compact size again), for even greater versatility.

Relatively slow AF performance for 20 is of very little concern, but AF of PL 15 will fully compensate if ever necessary.  Fuss over the 20 mm AF performance completely overblown IMO. Biggest knock for me with both these lenses is lack of splash proofing.

Oly 17/1.8?

Love your shots. All of them. Big noses are cool.

(Mine are the 15/1.7 and the 45/1.8, depending on how close I want to get).

I've always liked the m.ZD 17/f1.8. Small enough, fast enough, sharp enough, and the clutch means you can zone focus if you want.

I suspect I'd like the P-L 15/f1.7 if I ever had the chance to use one. I've always preferred 28mm to 35mm on film.
