Want to replace my 9-18

I like the oly 9-18 and it has been my companion for the past 6 year. However, operation has never been one of its assets for me.

Additionally, I am afraid that the internal ribbon cable could fail, as it has been reported by other users.

To make it short, I am looking for a replacement UWA lens for my (mainly) Panasonic bodies.

I was narrowing it down to the PL8-18 and OM8-25 but then i started considering the Lumix 7-14 too.

It compares quite well, optically to the PL8-18 (a bit more prone to flares under artificial lighting) but quite as sharp.

Other than the above or because it's not weather sealed and does not accept filters, do you see any reason for not considering the older lens?

Thanks for your opinions.
