than either the new Olymus 14-42 II or Panasonic 14-45 to replace the kit lens (still not sure which of these 2 are better, any further comment?)

Having the 14mm gives you the advantage of size and speed, plus it's a sharp lens. Well worth $160.

I don't know that replacing the kit lens gains you much other than bragging rights like "my lens is sharper than yours", what has changed?. Still a kit lens, limited in speed, although the Panasonic 14-45 is good. The money might be better spent toward the 20mm and 45mm primes. Both add  new capabilities to your camera. Or you could get the 40-150 zoom instead.  Then there's the Panasonic 25mm or a Oly 17mm. Consider a .74X wide angle adapter like the DMW-MA1 for your 14mm too.
