Tele lens: panasonic 45-175mm or 45-200mm?

Hi,

I'm considering buying a tele lens for a GX80. I narrowed it down to 2 panasonic: 45-175 and 45-200mm. I can't decide between them: they both have IS and are compatible with dual IS, have an aperture of 4-5.6, are not too big, and the 200mm is 80$ more expensive. All other things being equal I would prefer the longer range, but is there any drawback to the 200mm, like a difference in picture quality or AF speed between them, or a faster drop to 5.6 on the tele side? I tried to find reviews but most reviews for the 200mm were of the mark 1 which is now quite old.

Any way to choose between them?

Thanks.
