Any reason to go from Pan 12-35 to Oly 12-40?

I've had the Panasonic 12-35 on my EM-5 most of the time since purchasing more than a year ago.  My only real complaints are CA and distortion.  I can usually get rid of CA in Lightroom, with only a few images being troublesome.  Distortion, especially at the wide end, can be a bit much though and more difficult to tackle in LR.

I've read over SLR Gear's reviews on both lenses and I'm tempted to sell my 12-35 and get the 12-40.  I'm tempted, but not totally sold on it.  Can anyone who has been lucky enough to use both lenses on the EM-5 or even the EM-1 chime in here and let me know your thoughts?
