Re: broken 40-150R replacement: WWYD? GET ANOTHER ONE!

To the OP:

Sorry to hear of your financial losses; photography is expensive enough without these unfortunate accidents coming along.

I have the 40-150 myself and just used it yesterday to take stills and video of my daughter playing the violin on stage. Nice lens and light enough to put on a small light camera like my E-PM2.

I am with the chorus here: I would replace the 40-150 as soon as possible. To finance the purchase, I would sell the 14-150.

Considering the fact that you have much better lenses than the 14-150 in the wide to normal range, and that the 40-150 bests the 14-150 in the longer focal range, why do you need the 14-150? You said yourself that you don't think the image quality is up to snuff.
