Panasonic senor is very competitive. M4/3 is very close to performance of APS sensors from Sony and Canon. I don't think they can do better for Olympus, at least not by much.

Even if Panasonic can make the best sensors, they don't have to give their best sensors to their competitor Olympus. In addition, they can charge Olympus very high prices for their best sensors.

There was at least one mainstream press interview of a Panasonic rep who was asked why Olympus didn't have the GH sensor and answered (paraphrasing) that we don't have to give our competitor everything.
