Which of the panasonic leica 8-18mm and the olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 would you choose?

Normally I would choose the 8-18mm because it's easier to use filters on that lens. But the 7-14 has a manual focus clutch which is good for focus pulling. Putting filters on the 7-14 is a more involved process (and more expensive), but it can be done using the proper adapter and large enough filter.

Adding a filter though would cost me another €300 euros though. I don't really see me go that high for the lens plus filter set.
