Is Oly's 12-40 better than the Pan 12-35?

I have the 12-35 and it's a fine lens.

I like the fact that the 12-40 is slightly longer and has a closer min focus but it is also 70g heavier and I am weight sensitive.

I'm toying with the idea of getting an EM1 and getting Oly's 12-40 with it as the "kit lens" is by far the most economical way to buy it.

It all comes down to image quality.

If you've got experience with both leses I'd like to know what you think.

Thanks
