Default 14-150 Lens whats the consensus?

I've just been looking at the new 14-150mm lens review.
Apart from the extra 10mm reach it doesn't seem to have much of an edge over the 14-140mm.
What do you Pana guys think, is it worth the extra $ ?

The 14-150 is lighter, and focus faster then the 14-140. But if you are using it for photography they are very equal. With HD the 14-140 has the edge with the stepless aperture. But on a panasonic body, I would get the 14-140 over the 14-150 because of the base IS the panny uses. But for a oly guy, it depends on what you want to use the lens for, photos mainly, save the money go with the 14-150, for HD get the 14-140.

I would agree with ST here.

on a panny body, the 14-140 is the easy choice.

for an oly body, if its photos you are after the oly 14-150 is great.

for any video use, the 14-140 is the easy choice.

The 14-140mm is 'silent' for video, I don't know about the other one.
