Panasonic 7-14mm

Looking to buy  an ultra WA zoom. The three that I have been looking at are the Panasonic 7-14, Panasonic 8-18 and the Olympus 7-14 PRO. New the  8-18 is only a $100 more than the Pan 7-14, at B&H,  and takes filter which may or may not be useful- not sure yet.

Used, the Pan 7-14 is real bargain, seen on Ebay for less than $400...

Any major drawbacks to the old Pan 7-14? It will be primarily used on a Panasonic GX8 with occasional use on an Olympus EM1. Any known structural or reliability issues?

Being incredibly lazy,  I have ruled out fixed FL manual focus  options.

In use it will be coupled with a 12-40 as two lens kit for travel, some landscape and some street photography.
