I have a Panasonic camera now, so I'd be likely to opt for the Panny lens for the OIS.

This is also what I would do. Use the 12-35mm with a Panasonic camera. Yes, future models may have IBIS but it is nice having the option to use less expensive bodies such as a GX1 and still have OIS.

The Olympus 12-40 has a 20cm close-focus distance throughout the zoom range, so it should be very useable as a semi-macro lens.
