FT 7-14 or Pany...or new Oly

I have a FT 7-14, for which I have also adapted an extra hood to allow use of Lee and other square filter.  I still have my E-1 and E-5, but rarely use them  It does works well on my EM-1 and 5 but find myself seldom using it because of its bulk and weight, so I'm thinking of replacing it.

Reviews, which I long ago learned to somewhat distrust (they usually come form people who earn ther living from the camera industry, however indirectly) tend to indicate that the mFT panasonic version is just as good.  Any advice from people who have used both?

(I could also sell it and wait for the promised new Oly 2.8 mFT version.)
