I see no point to the Sigma. The light gains are minimal, the size gains are substantial and especially not well balanced on a GX85. I'd stick with the Oly 17/1.8 or Pan-Leica 15/1.7, depending on your field of view preference (or the Panasonic 20mm, which is gorgeous though slow focusing).

I used my PL15mm on the GX80 on Wednesday for an indoor architectural shoot. Big, bright, a usable aperture ring. Small lightweight system, easy to move around and some great shots. PL15mm.

Looks like you're all set!
Definitely 2nd, 3rd & 4th-ing the 12-32 - great, cheap, compact all purpose wide.
I quite like the Oly 17 f1.8 'cos its cheap, compact & bright.
FWIW I tend to gravitate to the smaller lenses on my soap-bar bodies and the longer lenses seem to balance better on the DSLR style bodies.
