Congrats on getting it - and it will be interesting to see which 2 (out of the 4 mentioned) you wind up keeping.Well I already had the O17mm f/1.8 and P12-32 f/3.5-5.6 but......
I suspect I'll keep 2 of the 4 and I think I know which two, but time will tell.
I got the P14 because I really enjoyed my X70, so it gives me something very similar. A fixed 28mm eq that can focus pretty close. It's bigger and heavier (and can be more complicated); but has faster AF and IBIS. And while the Pen F + 12-32 fit into my little NG1153 bag it's not as enjoyable. Yes it's convenient, but not as fun. This will probably be my new EDC, the NG1153 fits in the center console in my car so it's handy.
The PL15 I've owned it before, but always sold it on. In the past I've tended to prefer the 17mm focal length, but again I've enjoyed the X70. I've also been using the PL25 more and enjoying the way it renders on the Pen F. Maybe the third time will be the charm.

I honestly don't think I will ever give up my P12-32 - it's tiny but it's such a wonderful small lens with such great optical qualities.
The PL25 is on my list of lenses-I'd-really-like-to-get-some-day-but-haven't-gotten-around-to-it.
Good luck deciding
