Oly 12-45mm f/4 for my GX85 or...?

I'm now using the 12-32 kit lens. I like the size and find the image quality very good. On the down side, I find the 32mm and f/5.6 on the long end to be a bit constraining.

Enter the new Olympus 12-45mm f/4. The constant f/4 plus the extra reach of 45mm would be welcome. The optical quality is supposed to be better than the 12-32 especially at the longer FLs. It is a larger lens but might handle better than the sometimes fiddly 12-32. Price seems inline for what it is. I'm not sure about compatibility issues, if any.

I was also looking at the 12-60 Leica. It too is a very nice lens with a nice extra reach but the price is a bit of a stretch as is the size which is getting away from my compact setup, though it could be a 1 lens solution for me.

Thanks for any feedback.
