Panasonic leica 12-60mm vs Olympus 12-100

Please help me choosing:

I need a standard zoom longer than 40 in the tele end. This rules out the oly 12-40 2.8. Fast aperture isn't particular important as I'm gonna use it for portrait shooting in plenty artificial light conditions.

I'm looking at thee options:

1) The oly 12-100 would be my most preffered choice. But it's very pricy in Europe.

2) The Pana-Leica 12-60 2.8-4.0 is available for 60% of the price of they oly and covers the range I definitely must have for the desired application - but obviously the 60-100 range would be nice to have for other applications like travelling.

3) The Pana 14-140 - available for 40% of the price of the Oly. But I will miss the mm in the wide end as I currently have nothing wider than 15 mm and then I 'fear' that I will be disappointed with the results from the lens as I'm currently used to the excellent results from primes like the oly 25 mm and panasonic 15 mm.

Ultimately I can afford all 3 options - but option 1 is going to hurt. Will I regret it if I go for 2 or 3 (and in that case which one)

Thanks a lot,

Steen
