Olympus 14-140 f4-5.6 vs Olympus 40-140 f4-5.6 - optical difference?

I'm looking for a small tele for my OMD EM10 Mark IV. I was curious about the massive difference in price with the Olympus 14-140mm f4-5.6 and the Olympus 40-140mm f4-5.6. Hundreds of dollars. Is there is a big difference in optical quality? I see that the 14-140 is weather sealed, but this seems irrelevent as the EM10 is not. The extra 14-40mm focal range is also, for me, besides the point - I'm used to changing lenses in the field and I have the 14-40mm f2.8 Pro if I find I really want the extra focal length.

The only reason I would consider saving up for the 14-140 is if the optical quality was significantly better.

(I am open to Panasonic lenses, I am just not familiar with them and tend to lean towards native glass as it sometimes performs better).

Does anyone have experience with both these lenses? What are your observations?
