Re: I bought the 12-40, but....

All your candidate lenses have a restricted long reach. They are good quality but slightly on the heavy side for holiday photography. Have you considered the new version of the Panasonic 14-140mm lens. It is f3.5 at the wide end so not the fastest on the planet but for summer holidays that should not be a problem if you also have some fast primes for evening work. It is lighter, smaller and faster than the previous Panasonic 14-140 lens making it ideal for a travel companion.
