How bad do I need this lens?

I started out in MFT with the G1 and the 14-45 and 45-200.  I recently bought the G85 with 12-60 kit, and then picked up a used 7-14.

So..

I am considering buying a used 14-140 II, with the thought that I would replace both the 12-60 and the old 45-200 with it, and after I buy either the 100-300 or maybe 100-400, I would then have a nice 3 lens setup with full coverage from 7 to 300 (or 400).

I'm waffling a bit on picking up the 14-140 though because I quite like the 12-60, and expect I will miss having that extra 2mm on the short end without having to swap to the 7-14.

So the question is, how much am I going to miss not having the 60-100 range covered if I forego the 14-140 and just save the money for a 100-300?  Does anyone have experience with this?
