Low light wide prime for video?

Ive been investigating video and lower light shooting as of late with my EM1.2 and while the 12-40 Pro is a phenomenal lens id like something a hair faster.

Ive settled on a 35mm eq FoV and have been looking at just about everything I can find.

The Panny options are just too wide.
The Olympus F1.8/F1.2 Pro click during C-AF video, even with an external mic.
The Sigma is just larger and heavier than I would like.

I dont shoot a large amount of video, but the video I do shoot has relatively important sound so I couldnt just mask it with music. I wouldnt really mind the Sigma in the grand scheme of things.

What do you guys use?

Quite a few of us are thinking of the PL 10-25mm f1.7. But you'll probably be overcome with the weight of a f1.7 zoom.
