The old Olympus 12-50 f/3.5-6.3 lens is lighter, smaller, and has a slower aperture at the long end:

12-50 f/3.5-6.3 EZ: 211g, 48mm
12-45 f/4: 254g, 70mm

But not weather sealed so it doesn’t fall in the category of inquiry

The devil's in the detail but here...

....they say of that 12/50...

"WEATHERPROOF CONSTRUCTION - This lens features Olympus’ Dust and Splash-proof construction, so when it is matched with a Weatherproof OM-D body, rain, wind or snow won’t interfere with your photography."

They also give its length as 8.28cm / 3.26" - whereas, when collapsed, the 12/45 is noticeably shorter.... but extends on zooming!
