Re: Oly 12-40 Pro 'out'..Panny 14-45 'in'..well maybe.

The size of the 12-40 is on the big side, I agree. Whilst the 14-45 is smaller and IQ pretty good, you'll lose 2mm at the wide end and up to 2 stops of light gathering. For me, these would be problems unless I was treating the zoom only as a casual, daytime walkabout lens. If you're planning to use a standard range zoom for more serious use then lenses like the 14-45 aren't really ideal. Take a look at the 12-35 first - it's notably smaller and lighter than the 12-40.
