Replacement lens for Olympus 9-18mm

I have been happily using the Olympus 9-18mm which has met all my needs right up until it jammed at the weekend.

My quandary is do I just replace it like for like or do I "upgrade" to the Panasonic Leica 8-18mm. Is there a significant difference in the two other than the extra 1mm at the wide end. I generally tend to shoot in the f8 to f11 range.

The lens will used on my Lumix G9 and Gx8

I would be interested in the opinions of users especially if you have gone from the Olympus to Panasonic.

Many thanks.

One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photos out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photos out of focus are a style. Anon
