Too soon to tell

I've had the 12-35 on my OMD since the day I bought it.  My only complaints are with CA and distortion (on the wide end).  CA is easy enough to counter in Lightroom although it can sometimes be a pain.  Other than those tidbits, I love the lens.

Depending on test results with the 12-40, I would consider replacing the 12-35 with it, but ONLY if there are significant improvements in the 2 areas above AND if it's at least as sharp as the Panny.  Size and weight difference is negligible especially if it has internal zoom (which I heard it did, but haven't seen that confirmed yet).  Guess we'll see about all that.
